The spiritual process has gained ridicule
In the world because we must be entrepreneurs.
People selling a product will only sell waste.
Is it good to have most sacred teachings disgraced
By the marketing enterprise? Yes! It ensures
That the one making profit will not be the fool.
With respect to those teachers in far away lands
Who provided an atmosphere for folks to learn,
They do not want their teachings distilled into books
To be produced and peddled to folks with good looks.
Guidance is done in context. How does one discern
Its full essence when not a word one understands?
Is it Sense or Nonsense? This is all one may ask
Of oneself – not of wisdom that is packaged well.
Should one ask of one’s enemies and of best friends?
As the question is pondered, the spirit transcends
All the seeking outside oneself. Rather than dwell
On the nonsense abundant, put your sense to task.
