enigma of religion
an enigma lost between folds of reason
appears in proselytizing religions,
where an adamant convert tries to convince us;
“do NOT trust yourself !
trust ME for i’ve learned (by trusting others)
that I also am NOT to be trusted.”
for some odd reason,
this enigma stays hidden in a kind of pseudo-logic
prying out our own self doubts and uncertainties
it makes us trust in the distruster of himself
that perhaps he/she is to be trusted after all.
How does this work?
Seems to work best when “God” is used instead of “me.”
“Trust God…not yourself” sounds somehow sensible,
but its still enigmatic in that its this self-distruster’s
own perception of God we are now instructed to trust.
Heaven forbid…NOT our own experience or perceptions.
Enigma is perpetuated by borrowing and sharing.
better to simply say;
There may be MORE than anyone of us can know!
MORE than any of us could ever imagine or conclude,
shake out the folds of reason , of doubt and belief
and listen DEEPLY!
