The word religion means linking back to the One
Who contains all existence. Symbolically,
The circle represents no beginning or end.
Coming all from one source, each of us may transcend
Individual egos and agree to be
Loving to one another while having some fun.
In designs the world over the magic is seen,
Whether in architecture, ancient and modern,
Or the dome shaped temple structures of India,
Or the bronze shields recovered from ancient China,
The symbol is pervasive. To it we return
Constantly in experience. What can this mean?
The Alpha and Omega is what God is called.
The most powerful religious symbol, therefore,
Means also self-analysis. In the night sky
Myriad cyclic patters are what we live by.
My own soul is a circle that I may explore
And in doing so be delightfully enthralled.
All the day, year, and moon cycles are to be known
As the ones fundamental throughout humankind.
Leaving home to do whatever, then coming back
Is a kind of a rebirth where one can keep track
Of ongoing momentum. How we are designed
Is such that we’re not meant to be left on our own.
