Sun Ra Sunday


How carefully laid the scenes
How brilliantly superimposed
The substitute words to say and do.
How forced the seeming way of the pseudo-life.
If they would believe that vanity has them captive
If they would but believe the earth-gravity
Has them chained to its earth-plane vibration
Then they would come to know
Beyond the thing they call
The Beginning and End of knowledge-wisdom.
They would come to know
And they would know they know.

--Sun Ra

Love this powerful image - seems like something Jung or Campbell would have enjoyed, too. Nice pairing with the poem!
