Right Action

Into the crumbling chasm we fall,
past expectations and preconception
where rational mind’s great gift, perception
turns out to be not too much use at all;

and the comforting thoughts of our blindness
(great faith in dogmatic institutions
giving us outward form, but no solutions)
seem so useless, if void of some kindness.

When you accept a single lie, because
it makes your own state easy to swallow,
your search for truth is weakened and hollow;
and you may cure symptoms, but not their cause.
Ah, how much effort we each spend to solve
mysteries that do not help us evolve!
