We should maintain that if an interpretation of any word in any religion leads to disharmony and does not positively further the welfare of the many, then such an interpretation is to be regarded as wrong; that is, against the will of God, or as the working of Satan or Mara.

I must learn
the calligraphy
of egret stance,
poised on a word
that lies beneath
the weaving current,
steady, still.
