HOW DO YOU MANAGE YOUR BELIEFS?
Do you store them in your mind’s vault and throw its key into the sea
After memorizing their content and insuring them heavily?
Do you hang on to them for dear life, so convinced that you are right?
Is it so wrong to change one’s mind and to upgrade stale old dogmas
With newer versions of higher truths as they become available
As you would trade an older car which has poor gas mileage
With a more recent model, more appropriate for your age?
Are your beliefs stagnating in the dark pool of your mind,
Surrounded by sandbags that you believe to be your friends
While they effectively prevent the refreshing river of Truth
From infiltrating their domain and renewing their state of youth?
Expose your beliefs to fresh air, and they will get wings of their own,
Transcending your whole being and lifting you, both heart and soul,
To virgin territories of much higher understanding.
The long trail to Paradise cannot be walked with a backpack
Whose content is limited to lightweight spiritual snacks…
The Father provides manna from above, day after day,
Not to be saved in bank vaults as it would just waste away.
Truth stands on its own merit; it does its work “pro bono” …
If your beliefs need a lawyer, beware!
Highly-paid narcissistic devil’s advocates
Pull the wool over your eyes in defense of brazen lies
Meant to keep you in the dark… or so they wish.
