for Andrew Cohen and Ken Wilber
Though sitting in a meditative pose
While uttering your mantra may disclose
Some wonders of the transcendental kind
And nudge you toward a more enlightened mind,
Making you feel more sapient and whole,
Enlightenment in action is your goal.
It’s not enough to feel profound and sage
When there are worldly perils to engage.
When those in power rule in the dark,
Your mission then is to transmit the spark
That now illumines you and bring to light
An elevated vision of what’s right.
If our aberrant species can reform,
The transcendental way must be the norm.
