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)


A noble quest wins he who
wields the lightning bolt of
truth, the sword of knowledge
tried and true , to tear to
smithereens the veils of inky,
black unmitigated ignorance
-- the primal sin that makes
the untaught err and stumble.

Yet it is nobler still by far
to softly shine the gentle flame
of wisdom, light of cognizance,
upon the common fools,
the lost, the fearful, righteous,
arrogant and know-it-allís,
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 don't find light,
nor inner strength to wholly live.

No terror -- anywhere on Earth
or in the heavens -- comes close
to icy, loveless fear that permeates
the pooor in consciousness. There
is no higher bliss than wisdom,
no better friend than knowing
truth, no savior other than
the living Spiritís 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 peopleís 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 -- a lasting peace
that can endure the test of time.
Then joy and freedom reign
unchained, unspoiled by haughty flags,
divisive national intrigues or
dogmas that enslave and lead astray.

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!
Reviewed by Dawn Richerson 12/2/2004
With mind and spirit healed,
true justice can be won for all,
a chance for peace Ė 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
