Mindful Musings: Apr 7

“Heart of Wisdom”

men's yellow traditional dress

Academia gives birth

To false pursuits of wisdom

The State gives birth

To brutal horrors of war

Industry gives birth

To savage inequalities

The church gives birth

To the perversion of spirituality….

So, the man of wisdom

lies in wait

Opting instead

To remain fulfilled in stillness

But ever ready is he

To receive the foolish

with open arms and an open heart

For in truth he knows

That he is also them.
