Spirit tells me that spirituality is a natural capacity
To expand a mystical awareness and understanding
Of life that develops compassion for others.
We can, if we will to, increasingly recognize
Ourselves in others, and others in ourselves,
Without which, He claims, compassion is not
There is no essential difference between anyone.
We could never, He tells me, recognize love or
Hostility in others, if we were incapable of
Experiencing, to a greater or lesser degree,
Perhaps, the emotions that we witness.
In essence, there is oneness with variable attributes.
