for Christian de Quincey
Our human consciousness will be transformed,
The chill of hard and selfish egos warmed,
And Higher Consciousness at last attained
When our intelligence has grown right-brained.
Yet in this dangerous age, the left has ruled
That now, for safety’s sake must be retooled
And scientism’s sway give way to wise
Imperatives, with which the heart complies.
What other wonders may in time be found
By listening to the right brain’s subtle sound,
Which comes in dreams and mystic reverie,
May yet reveal the deepest mystery
When we unearth the Source, the Ground of Being,
A cosmic force that’s ultimately freeing.
