Seek Not Outside Yourself

From A Course in Miracles :

Seek not outside yourself . For it will fail, and you will weep each time an idol falls . Heaven cannot be found where it is not, and there can be no place excepting there . Each idol that you worship when God calls will never answer in his place . There is no other answer you can substitute, and find the happiness His answer brings . Seek not outside yourself .

 

The Act Of Love

The Act of love lies somewhere
Between the belly and the mind
I lost the love sometime ago
Now I’ve only the act to grind .

Brought her home from a party
Don’t bother swapping names
Identities not needed
When your only playing games

High on bedroom darkness
As we endure the pantomine
Ships that go bang in the night
Run aground on the sands of time

Saved in the nick of time
It’s cornflakes and then goodbye
Another notch on the headboard
Another day wondering why

The act of love lies somewhere
Between the belly and the mind
I lost the love sometime ago
Now I’ve only the act to grind .
