No Evil

There is no evil in the world but in man's heart and will and mind

There is no evil for the moralist to find.

Good and bad is but futility

in Nature's neutrality

There is no evil in the eagle's plan

There only evil in the will of man.


There is no evil in the world but in man's mind and heart and will

There is no evil in the sea moving or still.

The finger posts to good and bad

exist but in the human head.

There is no evil in things disastrous

There is only evil in the minds of us.


There is no evil in the world but in man's mind and will and heart

There is no evil in the wind that tears man's home apart.

Evil is but in man's intent

Evil is man, hell-ward bent.

There is no evil in the sting of the bee

There is only evil in the heart of me.






Nothing is All

To know that the pearl of great price

is but the Nothingness within yourself

is to approach the centre of wisdom

health and love


Seeking neither wisdom, health nor love

but only nothingness within yourself

you may stumble across the trinity which is

wisdom, health and love.
