Are You a Lifter or Leaner?

Are You a Lifter or Leaner?

There are just two kinds of people on earth today,

Just two kinds of people, no more, I say.

Not the rich and the poor, for to count a man’s wealth
You must first know the state of his conscience and health.

Not the humble and proud, for, in life’s little span,
Who puts on airs is not counted a man.

Not the happy and sad, for the swift counting years
Bring each man his laughter and each man his tears.

No, the two kinds of people on earth I mean
Are the people who lift and the people who lean.

Wherever you go you will find the world’s masses
Are always divided in just these two classes.

And oddly enough you will find, too, I ween,
There’s only one lifter to twenty who lean.

In which class are you?

Are you easing the load
Of overtaxed lifters who toil down the road?

Or are you a leaner who lets others bear
Your portion of labour and worry and care?

You Were…

You Were…

Wherever I traveled. You were manifested; Wherever I looked. You were revealed. In ka’ba, idol-temple, synagogue, and church, I saw All were searching for You, and to all You were a Friend. I sought only You in every person I met, every place I went; You were in every sign, both the outer and the…

It is in our nature to find our way

It is in our nature to find our way

It is in the nature of a way to reveal itself. A way does not wish to hide or be undiscovered. Until it is discovered, its purpose for existing is not realized. If you do not see it clearly, ask it to show itself to you. Do not be afraid to call out, “Brother Way!…
