REASON AND FAITH

 

REASON AND FAITH


Reason and faith,

like yang and yin, 

are not natural enemies

unless pitted against each other

as often occurs 

with citizens in church 

and men and women in marriage


Instead, ideally, rationality and emotions,

like left and right halves of the brain,

are needed to meld sense and desire 

into creative presence

lest we exist as heartless heathens

or brainless believers

outside the Kingdom of Joy

which is otherwise here
