Life is. All living beings evolve. By seeking wisdom and applying it in our lives, we can be part of humanity's spiritual evolution toward a better future. "This poem flows from the stream of life to the sea of wisdom" (A. E. B. ben-YEHU)


 

NO EYE EQUAL TO WISDOM

 

A noble quest wins he who

wields the lightning bolt of

truth, the sword of knowledge

tried and true , to tear apart

the inky veils of feeble-minded

and unmitigated ignorance

– the primal sin that makes

the untaught err and stumble.

 

Yet it is nobler still by far

to let the flame of wisdom softly

spread its light of cognizance,

to gently guide the common fools;

the lost, the fearful, righteous,

arrogant, and know-it-alls,

so as to broaden and enrich

their needy, yearning souls.

 

Blessed are they whose spirit

richly thrives with cosmic wisdom,

moral logic, and capacity for love.

For they will know the truth,

be brimming full with life; not

like the poor-in-spirit who subsist

in dread and can’t find light,

nor strength to wholly live.

  

No terror – anywhere on Earth

or in the heavens – comes close

to loveless fear that permeates

the poor-in-consciousness. There

is no higher bliss than wisdom,

no better friend than knowing

truth, no savior other than

the living Spirit’s might.

 

The greatest human victory yet

unshackles those whose spirit is

enslaved by flawed, self-serving

and unnatural beliefs; is petrified

with fear of vengeful gods. Once

freed, a people’s spirit molds a will

to banish from their minds all

vengeance, envy, fear, and greed.

 

With mind and spirit healed,

true justice can be won for all;

a chance for peace that will endure,

once humans cast out vicious hate.

Then freedom reigns, unspoiled

by haughty flags and national

intrigues, unchained from all

beguiling dogmas that enslave.

 © Dietmar Rothe, 2004

 

The poem was inspired by the wise teachings of Jmmanuel (Jesus) as retold in the Talmud of Jmmanuel [TJ26:27,28]:

There is no eye equal to wisdom, no darkness equal to ignorance, no power equal to the power of the spirit, and no terror equal to the poverty of consciousness.

There is no higher happiness than wisdom, no better friend than knowledge, and no other savior than the power of the spirit.

It was further influenced by quotes from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe [1749 - 1832]:

Noble let a person be, compassionate and good.

and from Friedrich Schiller’s [1759 - 1805] verse:

A higher conquest’s won by him who swings the lightning bolt of truth to free the human spirit-mind.

The poem is offered freely with heartfelt wishes to all who have ventured on a personal quest for spiritual knowledge and values, and for meaning in their lives. You are encouraged to copy it and distribute it freely. Commercial reproduction requires written permission from the author.

"There
is no higher bliss than wisdom,
no better friend than knowing
truth, no savior other than
the living Spirit’s might."

These lines can stand alone to promote and encourage others to follow their creed. We ARE more than we appear. A strong write, Dietmar.

you have unearthed metaphysical wisdom and the enlightened consequence of those who venture into the realms of universal perspective and the intrinsic knowledge that man is an evolving creature who adorns the quintessential energy of an expanding spiritual being ... it reaches into the potential of man's metabolic motion by securing the truism that we are more than we appear ...

great job!

With mind and spirit healed,
true justice can be won for all,
a chance for peace – a lasting peace

... and the real war being waged is the battle for our minds and spirits. many deceptive and alluring illusions that would keep us enslaved to darkness (i.e. lack of wisdom, insight, higher consciousness) and separated from the possibility of peace within and in the world at large
