the search for true power

your true power comes
from the vertical dimension
of inner depth

but most seek power
from the horizontal dimension
of past and future

and find nothing but tyranny and pain.

we must sacrifice ourselves on the cross
of the horizontal and vertical
as jesus did
the ego must be sacrificed
to god and divine will.

it’s tricky
for the ego mind is tenacious
and can pretend it has found the way

we call it religion

but no church can lead you to awakening
that is a journey
between you alone and god

the sacrifice must be voluntary.
