Neti Neti Neti


The yogis say, neti neti neti.
I am not this, not that, not the other.

The Christians say, go forth and be filled
with the Holy Spirit.

The Buddhists say, your true nature is Clear Light.

There is something more than meets the eye.
Dive deeply below the surface of your life,
what will you find there?

Turn on your searchlight,
use your miner's helmet,
and dig through the debris of all your days.

Fear not—gold gleams within the darkness.

We are not this, not that, not the other.
