Something better besides

Something better besides                                                                       

To seek the truth
is to covet what God knows.

To seek nothing
is to honor His secret.

To seek nothing is the ultimate faith.
A dearth of trust is truth-seeking,

the self-seeking of reward.
To seek nothing is to abandon

the paradigm of loss and gain,
truth being only what is now.

Nothing else to be known; unstorable,
untranslatable into knowledge.

Grasp at truth?  Or hold out simply
your God-issued begging bowl?

O child of God, truth is greater than illusion

but there’s still something better besides.
