THE WAY UP
What sets us humans higher up the chain
Of being than creatures deemed inferior
Is consciousness that reaches to a plane
Of insight probing our interior.
The higher up, the further in we go
To penetrate the Cosmos’ very heart
With intuition showing here below
What’s up above, by our so potent art.
If until now it’s only sages who
Could master esoteric practices
Revealing the whole scope that we can know,
That secret’s out, for all to learn what is.
Not that such wisdom’s easy to attain,
But yet the Way’s now clear and worth the pain.
