What is it one should worship and revere
Because above all else it is most dear?
The answer must be Higher Consciousness,
Which humankind seems destined to express
And which some few have managed to achieve,
Enough to make the rest of us believe
That wisdom is our species’ destiny,
The way we’ll end our history’s misery.
Our challenge, then, is how to cultivate
What helps us grow to that serene estate:
It’s quiet first, a stilling of the mind,
So we may providently grow aligned
With what it is that brought us into being,
A vision of what’s ultimately freeing.
