Unplug It


There is a perfectly smooth, impeccably painted wall.

But if a hidden projector shines an image of a crack onto it,

when you walk by, you will think that the wall needs to be fixed,

when actually the wall is just fine.

You need to disconnect

the projector of the erroneous image

instead of bothering to try to fix the wall.

Your body is the perfectly painted wall

and the projector is what the Bible calls the carnal mind.

So resort to the one, infinite, all powerful, divine Mind

to shut down that imposter mortal mind, and put it out of business.

Unplug, unplug, unplug

that devious, subtle, concealed,

and sometime overheated

projector of lies.

The real wall behind the trumped up insinuation

remains as fresh and good as it was originally

patiently waiting to be seen

for what it gloriously already is

without any superimposed impositions.

Be confident that error, wherever you see it,

is just a suggestion, and not the truth of being.

Don’t muck about, as so often is done,

trying to fix what seems to be but is not

when you can just disengage

the source of the fraudulent information,

and the problem vanishes,

leaving you to rejoice.

    I wish that fraudulent information were clue enough to explain Adolph Hitler and other moral monsters.

      Maybe if caught and reversed early enough before those errors compounded and magnified?

    I really, *really* like this one. A lot. Powerful. Emboldening.
