compassion

 

the world is full of the divine

and would be empty without it.

 

it is that which holds

the parts of atoms together

and it is the parts.

 

things are not what they seem,

they are constructions of the divine,

without exception.

 

there are no boundaries between this and that,

between divine and divine is divine.

 

compassion is that state of mind

that recognizes the divine.
