Why Is It So Hard?

Questioning The Contingent Difficulty

If I were to say that I’m God in India,
They would say, “But of course. It’s good that you found out.”
But if I said the same thing here, things would go south
Rather quickly. “What heresy comes from your mouth!”
They would shout in resentment. This leaves me no doubt
That it’s hard to express such a strange idea.

“Whatever the hell you may be, you’re certainly
Not the Lord God!”
No one needs that blast in the ear.

The idea, to some, is very dangerous.
Moral standards, they fear, will be superfluous
And diminished if all people do not adhere
To their own rigid religious philosophy.

Dangerous ideas are contained within all
Fundamental religious structures. History
Demonstrates this quite clearly. Who can’t wonder why
It appears we are not God? We can but rely
On our physical senses. Multiplicity
Is our standard perception restricted and small.

What would it be like if you had the chance to see
Everything in its fullness and oneness? Would you
Feel that you were God at least for a little while?
No one need feel that, in this state, one is on trial
And about to be sentenced. The vision is true
And available to all of humanity.
