Religion Minus All Myths - Poem by Raj Arumugam

-->

religion without myths
that is honest inquiry
drops all stories and theories and revelations
and there is no Holy Book and is sans scriptures
and leaders and prophets and followers;
and there is no superior and inferior
and there is no separation;
religion without myths has no concepts and ideas and teachings
and there is no tradition and holy place and no fixations and destinies;
religion without myths
that is honest inquiry
drops all structures and systems
and second-hand insights and labels and cliches
and religion without myths
has no authority and no leaders and priestly classes
and religion without myths has
no ready-made solutions
one buys off supermarket shelves;
and there are no certainties
and here are
no followers and votaries and initiates and mindless masses;
and so it is that the leaders and priests corrupt religion
and so it is that followers demand revelation and revered leaders -
but the fearless
dropp all structures and teachings;
and the fearless see what actually is
rather than what is wished for
and made concrete through systems
