for Larry Dossey
What makes our own intelligence unique
Is our profound capacity to seek
For what we seem intentionally designed
To find: communication with One Mind.
A Singularity, our cosmos sprang
From nothing in the wondrous Big Bang
And over eons learned complexity
Until self-conscious creatures came to be,
Then ever-higher consciousness emerged
As if by some supreme directive urged:
Good orderly direction working out
Intentions it had always been about.
What now remains is for our race to find
The grace by which to recognize One Mind.
