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.
