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.
