looking without

most people
in modern society,
with minds
anchored and bathed
in the choppy waters of modernity,
stay afloat
on an inflated ego
without realizing
the air of inflation
is their spiritual potential
wasted on inflation of the ego….
the air of inflation
mingles with
the external seductions and distractions
that keep the ego
always looking without, not within,
for buoyancy, meaning, and ultimately, transcendent flight.
