A living lie
Jesus said, I am the Truth.
My Master said, I am nothing
but a living lie ....
For the two-millenniums-old Jesus,
the tattered scriptures, the crucified Christ,
He said - I am not the body. I am not the mind.
For the Bhagavad Gita and the Buddha's mu,
He said - I am not this. I am not that.
Jesus' phrase, having become a complacency,
is rejoined by a provocative conundrum.
I am nothing, said my Lord, but a living lie
of the truth that is Me.
To enter the realm of illusion (apparently)
Truth eternal must become a living lie -
not just for the Godman
but, for all God-in-human-forms.
O child of God, Meher added, ... and unless
the lie is dead, the Truth cannot be.
