For a moment let me catch your ear if I may.

To share with you an increasing belief, capturing the world more and more today.

I’m not religious you see,

I’m not a Buddhist, Catholic, Hindu, Mormon, Baptist, Muslim or Sufi.

But there is more of a philosopher, a lover of wisdom in me.

For all the great truths with their scriptures and ritual’s lead to the same.

It’s the dogma and segregation that are to blame.

For I am the spirit, the light, the same that’s in you.

I am the oneness of humanity and the absolute.

I am self and god realization. I am god consciousness as the truth.

And most importantly I am the same love that’s within you.
