A living lie

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.
