Experience is in the consciousness of the beholder.
Moses parted the Red Sea to freedom
Krishna’s flute beckoned the milkmaids on a moonlit night
Arjuna picked up his bow and fought the just war.
Stuck in a mythic paradigm
How do we communicate
When a literal translation informs your worldview?
From the ground of nothing
You argue for a creative intelligence
That oversees the laws of nature
Orders the universe in a grand design.
You say the mind cannot comprehend this source
Is it science or is it God
Does it matter by what names we call the Creator?
History tells the stories of our plight to understand
The fundamentalist, the pluralist, the rationalist
Each in our own world.
Move beyond these filters
Embrace our common goal
Let love become the center
Stand firm on the ground of our shared humanity!
