Correcting Ills of the World
by Stewart Bitkoff
Age Group: Adult
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 Amazon.com or local bookstore.
