Looking over the ages of our history,
The degrees of unconsciousness clearly are seen.
I reflect the asleep state. It takes over me.
If I lose it completely those I know will see
But an arrogant ego who’s troubled and mean.
Energy patterns similar are by decree.
Karmic Law is unbreakable as it is made
Through deeds done while sleep acting or in awareness
Of the essence of Being. How can I complain
Of the actions of others I know are insane
When my own ill behavior, I humbly confess,
Is too much in alignment with my own crusade?
In the act of forgiving, compassion is shown.
Recognition of ignorance is the release
Of the need to seek justice. What takes care of that
Is their own karmic drama engrossed in combat
With themselves and their enemies. I will know peace
In unfettered observance while poised to atone.
“Please forgive them for they know not what harm they do…”
Is the message eternal to all humankind.
Suffering is an option that I need not take.
I ensure that by becoming fully awake
To the ill state we’re all in because of the mind
Recreating fresh turmoil from out of the blue.
