GNOSIS

We walk in a cloud,
ignoring the mist
that hangs before us,
afraid of what we might find
if the mist were to lift.

This side of the cloud, a jealous god,
imperfect, in our image
just as we are made in his.
On the other side,
the all encompassing One,
with whom we are totality,
whose message of love
and beauty and truth
exists without end,
if only we knew how to hear,
if only we knew how to see.

Comfort. Fear.
These are what motivate.
These are what hold us back
from knowledge and truth,
from being fully human,
from the divinity within.
