Religions Of Man - Part I - Or - Get Close To The Shore Yourself - Poem by Egal Bohen

The Religions of Man
Are like vast rivers
Meandering slowly
Across great plains to the ocean

By waters from the heavens
Travelling different directions
To reach the same ultimate destination

Some now flow so slow
That they have lost all sense of direction
Others have become altogether dried up
Some so polluted
They support no hope for life
Either here or after

Best use your own senses
And your mind
To find how to get close
To the shore by yourself
Where you will find
Fast clear streams
That flow straight into
The Ocean of Truth
That still patiently
Awaits us

    I believe all religions teach, or preach, moral development. If a person is true to his / her religion there would be no need for conflict. It's when we act as lawyers and manipulate the true law of our religion, to satisfy our own selfish needs, in order win our case. (Report) Reply
