On Absorbing Truth

All the morals and ethics in the world As principles and values unfurled, Mean nothing without appropriation Into heart and soul with approbation. We must absorb truth into our being So inner light we are always seeing As our guide into the next dimension, Believing in eternity as a life extension, Our truth must become as real inside As real, right now, all in eternity reside.

Eloquent, evocative and elegant, Milt. Your rhymes and wisdom flow so easily from one line to the next. There is a whole lot of "meat" to digest in your poem. I love the line about absorbing truth - letting it become a part of every part of us. Congratulations on your win!

You know I totally believe this also "We must absorb truth into our being So inner light we are always seeing"

Yes. Too often we allow truth to simply wash over us without absorbing or incorporating it into our being.
