That from a blind universe
Billions of eyes
Like yours and mine --
Could it be any plainer than that?
That a thousand human tongues
And billions of non-human languages
From a universe devoid of meaning --
What could be more convincing?
That from a heartless, dog-eat-dog universe
Came so many men, women and animals
Who have loved and befriended me --
What evidence could be more persuasive?
I hold these truths to be self-evident:
This raw non-symbolic experience
of how nature feels
from the inside;
That the universe is filled
with billions of kinds
of invisible minds;
That all sentient beings
equally near to the mystery;
That deep reality
is waiting for one of us
to ask the right question.
