Only in God
does everything belong:
the good and the bad –
all other systems exclude
for ideological purity.
Both communism and capitalism
believe in a future paradise/utopia
in which there is no shadow
which makes them ironically open
to every moral infestation/corruption.
Only by abiding
in God’s unconditional love
do we find the safety and freedom to be
who we really are (our True Self)
all that we are (good and bad)
more than we are (saints)
and less than we are (sinners).
if they find their True Self
all problems will be solved.
However, this narcissism
ignores social/cultural dimensions
necessary for transformation of civilization.
does not convert society
does not create the kingdom/queendom of God
the Beloved Community.
Ego intuits Spirit
as Higher Self, Soul
Inner Voice, Witness
Universal Mind, Pure Awareness
Transcendental Consciousness, Gnosticism
but this leaves out
the We of culture
the It of politics.
Christology must be seen
thru eyes of victims’ oppression
not thru magical conceptions
of victors’ redemption.
When scripture is seen
the Perennial Philosophy
which is what the world
We must learn to live with relativity
of all human ideas
all theological/scientific dogma.
The future is open-ended and inter-connected:
the freedom to flow and connect
are the new survival skills
in this twenty-first of all centuries.
