Religion or Spirituality

The Master taught the ancients, the brilliant art of making fire; Losing the art in imprudence, they also forgot the Master. Beliefs, doctrines, rites, rituals, Have, no doubt, elements holy; Deeper than these peripherals, - Is true Spirituality… Signs, symbols, worships, and scriptures, Have been indicators of - Truth; Indicators are path-pavers, Can path-pavers be: 'The Path?' Lotus, swan, Vedas, garlands, and Holy beads are simple symbols; 'Brahma' dwells in the farthest of far land, Within inmost heart's citadels. Every flower, every plant, tree, Each bird, any animal be; Every insect, every fly, bee, Are all spirituality. Spirit has no forms, shapes, structures, And tangible anatomy; It's in and around all creatures, In symphony-like harmony. It's that lets me alter, detach, That tells me respect, tolerate; Tells always blessings to dispatch, And with God to cooperate... It prompts me to face and accept, To truly my duties perform; To love, let go, wholly respect, To always discern and transform...
