“FREEDOM FOR ALL!!!!!!
[with a nod to Gandhi, in prison]

Knowledge expands exponentially,
a noise, an explosion, threatening to trap us, even destroy us.
It does not expand fast enough to save us.
The more we know,
The more we know we don’t know.
Seemingly doomed to be trapped in Plato’s cave of ultimate ignorance,
we just wonder if it’s cold or warm out there.
In the darkness we stumble
unable even to change our own destiny,
even within the bonding confines
of our birth and death.
There is a way out
transcending death.
There is a way to transform this apparent prison
of destiny, of ignorance
into a palace of the heart.
We have each other to light the fire
of love
so we can see ourselves.
We need not just escape the cave!
In such mirror of love
we shall not burn down the world from our cave,
we shall burn the firewood of desire into enlightenment,
and we shall invite the entire world into the confines
of our offering open heart.
WE SHALL TRANSFORM MISERY AND INNER IGNORANCE INTO UNIVERSAL VICTORY OF WISDOM AND TRUE JOY!
******
Gandhi, from prison: ‘We each carry our cave with us.
With love, or rather mercy, we can carry the whole world.”
