Believe in Spirit

In the 19th century, Darwin laid out

The theory of Evolution.

Bishop Ussher had calculated

A world 6,000 years old.

Nietzsche wrote that God is dead.

 

The era of science as religion had begun.

Thesis – antithesis – synthesis, wrote Marx.

Religion is the opiate of the masses.

None of them understood

The nature of spirituality.

‘The Tao that can be told,’ wrote Lao Tse,

‘Is not the eternal Tao.’

He understood, 600 years before Jesus,

That spirit is the essence of

Conscious awareness.

It is the source of

Subjective experience.

Everywhere we look, we see God.

To write about it is next to impossible.

 

Like this:

A candle wavers in the wind.

We are leaves,

Connected to one tree,

Fish in the sea,

Lightning and thunder,

Earthquakes reveal its power.

 

Pray just to connect to it.

Worship, just to acknowledge it.

Serve, just to align with it.

It exists.  Believe in it.
