Those who hold power will always insist that you’re weak
They say this so that they may sell you middlemen –
texts or institutions – structures designed
to maintain your dependence.
Though they hammer on that god is everywhere
you’re steered away from any possible encounter
genuine meeting – face-to-face confirmation –
If you must believe, then believe this:
No structure was ever really needed –
rather is required your willingness
to sit alone for a time in some pleasant meadow
or some quite room, and simply remain open
to direct encounter with what lives
deep within your self.
