The Shame of Religion [rev:15]

25 Mar

Page 6 of 110 ~Pine Cone Diary~

Why do we seek revenge, when our Soul

        Is a ghost without identity; that seeks peaceful universal assimilation?

Those who capture other’s souls of Faith, caged in hate or repression, have honed their zeal

        To inflict retribution as righteous judgment, on all “un-holy” dissidents.

Unable for their hearts to control their tongue or their scourge.

 

Love’s prerequisite of understanding, dampens volatile gun powder

        And buries the sword of hate on the path to Nirvana, Olam Ha-Ba, Heaven, and Jannah …

Or any place else that is soft enough to dig with your hands, under loves direction, to bury your hate

wrapped in your inability to leave it alone. Silent until you truly understand.

(Having found on that path, without harm, a pure gentle human heart melted in living flesh

That had no eyes, nor memory, floating freely, Holy above the intellect in senses

without shame, I found myself without anything, for my Love, to have to explain.)

 

 

 “In the universal silence of nature and in the calm of the senses the immortal spirit’s hidden faculty of knowledge speaks an ineffable language and gives [us] undeveloped concepts, which are indeed felt, but do not let themselves be described.”  Immanuel  Kant

    Love’s prerequisite of understanding, dampens volatile gun powder.

    This is such a strong line – most thought-provoking for our times.

    There are part of religion that I cannot understand… the gospel is actually very simple, but we do dig up the worst and call it church…

    I agree – there is no place for revenge in religion. Let god be the judge, but let humanity accept.

    I love that “place soft enough to dig with your hands …to bury your hate.” Wonderful, ZQ! With enough burying, we just might get to a place of peace. And oh, how I love your closing lines. That is truly Love – no need to explain, only to Be. Hard to find, at best.

    Oh, the inability to leave it alone….this is so often our undoing. If only we could just BE and let things alone.

    Paradise doesn’t seem like the sort of place that welcomes bullets or swords or hatred… Well said.

    it’s all this infamous ego’s doings…words like ‘I’, ‘Me’ ‘myself’, ‘Mine’ seem to be the ingredients hell is made of….so ‘Love’ has fled….
