COPLA CUARENTA Y SIETE: This Bad Guy World


Could humans be thought intelligent
And gods dumb blind bloody heartless:
Might it look true

Or are humans made to relent
Higher design by gods no less:
More likely true

Supreme God uses toddler gods
The rhythmic Shiva dance divine:
Yang-Yin la-di-da

Till humans learn to become gods
And submit to His Grand Design:
Lordly lila*

• Lila (leela) : In Hinduism, the Supreme Being (Brahman)
in a magical creative act manifests himself in the Universe acting out the 'Divine Play' through a rhythmic dance (of Shiva) , and the 'Divine Actor' casts a spell on the beholder of the creative act which appears as an illusion (maya) to him. And then He returns to Himself.

    Thank you very much for your comment, SunPrincess. I don't know why I can't see it here, but being quite thick in the head, I guess it is there and considering the Supreme Being must have cast a spell upon me, I keep wondering if it's not there after all: a question of maya! Hope you don't take it amiss! Every good wish. Wignesan (Report) Reply

    ..............truly if we look at the big picture....even the most intelligent of our species.....the ones we call genius...they have a miniscule intelligence compared to our God who knows all things... (Report) Reply
