We learn by the things we suffer
though it need not ever be so
when paths of beauty, joy and wonder
beckon to change our primitive thinking
and just let old paradigms go.
That which hurts and divides with conflict
never profits Humanity as a whole,
neither its body nor its soul.
We can let go the selfish, immature ‘I’
and the fearful ‘Eye’ of ancient religions-
gods of judgments, wrath and revenge,
false promises and mountains of lies…
We can grow as a Species in unity
and glory in Life’s great diversity.
We can put our shadows behind us
and shine our true Light with the Sun.
(October 15, 2020- Shelley Wilson)
