It has been said that no one knows a thing
regarding truths of existential law.
Fixed dogma makes the mind a broken wing,
whose flight is lean on logic, long on awe.
Not politics nor science breaks the seal
where luminating facts are genuine,
whose actuality explains the real
relationship of earthborn to Divine.
The first free-standing landmark on the Way
to higher mind is owning you know less
the more you learn from living every day,
remembering to inwardly confess
that teachability and truth collide
when self succumbs to arrogance and pride.
