Correcting Ills of the World

by stewart

People treat others badly

Because they do not know

How to treat themselves well.

The ills of the world

Are correctable only

By raising better people.


Better people are produced

Through a form of learning about self

That is called by some higher knowledge.

Higher knowledge is available

If you search for it,

And are fitted to receive it.

That is the quandary.


The task of the rightly guided ones

Is to tend this desire for higher knowledge

And under the proper circumstances share it.

These circumstances include:

Right time, right place and right people.


So you think I am talking in riddles?

Perhaps, I am or maybe

You need to alter your way of thinking

And looking at the world?



Check-out my two new books: Sufism for Western Seekers: Path of the Spiritual Traveler in Everyday Life  and The Ferryman’s Dream.  Both books are available through or local bookstore.
