Beyond the frontiers of the Mind

You thought you knew because you read it in a book

Painting by Quincey Tahoma

The words fed to the masses and traded for faith

The ideas of the prophet translated as memes

Blinding beliefs sold as merchandise

Making profit on the devotees.

Beyond the frontiers of dogma,

there is an unrestrained freedom

but to get there, you have to forget about

the uncivilised freedom of the old school rock star.

What you thought was the truth

is only the beginning of a lie.

Go back to the body, go back to the rhythm of the heart.

Loose yourself in the purifying fires of not knowing with the mind.

Faith is a big word

Freedom is even bigger

The Word distracts you from the truth

into the exquisite pleasures of description.

While the real you sits quietly knowing,

filled with every single spark that shines forth from the Sun.

The teacher shapes you into an anxious contradiction.

A skilled puppet

Who is in charge?

Is it the Donkey or the Spirit Rider
