Bow To None


Bow to none, not even to God.

But, if you must bow, then do bow to God.

For, He will forgive you your foolishness.

Man has created the ritual of bowing, not God.

Bowing to another is within the realm of ego and not of the Divine.

It was born out of misdirection and a misuse of power.

Power was never to be used to reign over another.

But to share with and to enrich the other.

Remember this and reign in yourself and never others.

Then you will know and experience the power of the Divine as you transcend ego.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
