Religions…Hypatia ponders…
are the blessing and bane of human existence—
mankind’s glory and curse—
vehicles for power and conquest—
justification for countless cruel injustices,
authoritarian tyrannies, and horrendous destructions…
Religions…Hypatia reflects…
are messengers of love—
humanity’s bright hope
announced by alien angels and saintly souls—
institutions destined to embody universal love or die
in the vast aeons to come…
With or without religions…Hypatia realizes…
God is forever present throughout the Universe.
And with or without Religions—
these great catalysts of love and fear—
Spirit and spirituality will never cease to be.
November, 1996
