Ox and Angel

The Buddhists say, "the search for God is much
like wandering about upon an ox,
while searching for an ox." This view is such
at odds with mainstream Christian thought, it shocks
those sure believers in their mighty Lord.
For them, His realm exists outside of time,
where Heaven waits to dole men due reward
for living lust-free lives, hands clean of crime.
But some men say that Life is more a school
to resurrect the Angel from the mire,
where waking Self's a soul-reflecting jewel
with Honor's face and Wisdom's inner fire.
The search for 'Heaven's king' seems more a myth:
The God you're looking for, you're looking with.
