Rasta Buddhist Stones

Updated on April 7, 2013

There can be no understanding between us
Until you and I become I and I
The differences we resist live inside of I
And what is you must become a part of I

What we seek is apart from what is valued
There will be no society that we seek other than I
And what is I is untouched by what is external
And what causes desire is not part of I and I

Natural phenomena fills us with fear
It is a sign that God is among us
We will stop all thought and praise him
For his hand allowed life to roam within us

There is no ambition that will penetrate
Our entire being will be passive resistance
But full of pride we can never be insulted
And those who are not I will fear our insolence

We will never bow down to Babylon
Neither willingly or being conquered
We gave up what is required
And built the walls upon which they fired

A mood is I and your mood is I
The dominant mood is I
And the second and third mood is I
And within this freedom is I

What I give up is expectation
What you give up is you
When you become I and I become I
Then suffering is shared by one instead of two

      Thank you my friend. I'm flattered that you received my words in such a positive manner. I wasn't sure if I had it right... it's my interpretation of things I have read in the past.
