                    What all our world’s religions aim to do
                    Is show us errant humans what’s above
                    The miseries we’ve made so much ado
                    About through all our history—that Love 
                    Is the sole guiding principle we must
                    Espouse if we’d transcend inveterate sin,
                    Misleading us toward anger, greed and lust
                    And other lethal ways we’ve wandered in
                    Not yet awakened to the highest joy,
                    A latency in our capacity
                   That guidance will allow us to deploy,
                   The blooming of supreme felicity—
                         For only love, encompassing the world,
                         Can save us now, in endless error hurled.
