Ummm...doesn't the next flow of lines really hit you in your...wallet...?

Be light

Flow though brilliant river we term love
Overflow and flood that all may drown
Fill the tortured soul and buoy above
Birth the hidden smile within the frown

Fountain high compassion…burn us clean
That we in turn be light within the light
That from our sordid selfishness we wean
That touching blackened hearts we make them bright

We are not given life that we may grasp
Our arms and hands not formed to garner wealth
Beware the virile bite of greeds own asp
Who poisons minds with riches in his stealth

From here to there...and everywhere...

That's great!! Isn't money or greed one of the roots of all evil? Or so I've read. Very good poem!

um! sorry but it graets on me.
could you tell me what your meaning is with this.
please dont hate me!!

as a pagan I have seen much like this
but what I have seen would not use.
"Fountain high compassion…burn"
you are using water.
so i would use cleanse, purify, wash, and the like.
maybe be you would like to read Pagan poetry?

Ummm...hello say potayto...I say potaato...laser surgery is all about was heating the knife in the fire centuries before that wonderful invention...smelting also purifies by burning the impurities and bringing them to the surface as slag...(simplified)...I am speaking mainly about what it means to be a "light within the light"...a spiritual phrase from "the Book of Thomas"...

However...I know where your coming from...yet I don't personally equate purity with matter...unless one is attempting to cleanse ones "house"...before attempting to beseech or practice using energy...

Don't get me wrong...I have personal experience with feeling the effects of and using energy...I just don't do it unless I have cleansed/purified first...very dangerous...I would never recommend such...

I was curious...if your screen name is Buddha...why you practice paganism...?

Be well my friend
I Would also love to read your matter the subject...

Ummm...Hello Nat...I love calling you that...that's what I call my Sister Natalie...Only...come to think of it...there were quite a few times I'm sure...that it was spelled in "go away kid...ya bodda me"...

I don't think it's the money...or necessarily the greed...a little greed is in husbanding away to make it through the's a part of human nature...
The evil aspect steps in when monetary greed becomes's the power that corrupts...the money is just a coattail ridden by those afflicted with that particular psychosis...

I kinda think you knew all that already though...but it did give me a chance to step up on my soap box..didn't it...?

Come to think of it...this soap box is looking a trifle worn out...time for a new shiny one...

Be well my friend...
