To question a faith

To question a faith

To learn of truth, peruse
the discourses of Meher,

scriptures of Jesus, the other Avatars;
read the enlightened Ones but not aloud.

Not aloud.  Hush!  Words are holy
only chalked up in the human heart;

tainted upon the lips of anyone
short of sainthood; recited

from ignorance and to advantage,
persuasion, impression,

impassioning desires and devotion;
to prove someone in error or unworthy,

to question a faith, a path chosen or otherwise,
to belittle the infidels and besot the faithful;

in short, a perilous, unwieldy instrument
having in the wrong mouths and ears,

little to do with truth,
those noble, rousing phrases,

much less compassion,
divine love and God Himself.

O child of God, He remained silent, a simple clue
yielding much insight and inspiration.
