Separation pulls apart our togetherness
Divides the tender Oneness of us
Makes cruel havoc of who is in the right
to wipe out who must be wrong
In that myopic celebration
All dressed in the fineness rightness
Strutting the lies of perception
Separation cheats us of unity
How closed the mind becomes in
A one belief held tightly wrapped
In clear assured pronouncements
Hearing others without Listening.
Speaking the expletive of limited thinking
Chests puffed up with words full of spike and bitter
Making Wrong someone else’s right.
Separation has no place for forgiveness
And worse still is the Heart that forgot to feel
The heart that holds the quiet voice of tender
The quiet voice of love unconditional
The ever present willingness to forgive
To hear the call to compassion and togetherness
How we all beat together in the blood, bones and
Sinew of our likeness and our differences?
Separation is the ego’s dive into self-righteousness
Can we meet in the in-between of light and shadow
Recognize our self in the Other, to truly feel and see
How all of us are here, breathing, living,
Struggling, laughing, dying, mourning,
Being right, Being wrong, Being…
Celebrating the adjectives of life as we live it.
Separation is a destroyer of worlds
Can you dare to be wrong?
Can you give up your rightness to save the world?
