A Golden Compass

Forget every idea of right and wrong
Any classroom ever taught you


An empty heart, a tormented mind,
Unkindness, jealousy and fear

Are always the testimony

You have been completely fooled!

Turn your back on those

Who would imprison your wondrous spirit
With deceit and lies.

Come, join the honest company

Of the King's beggars -
Those gamblers, scoundrels and divine clowns
And those astonishing fair courtesans
Who need Divine Love every night.

Come, join the courageous

Who have no choice
But to bet their entire world
That indeed,
Indeed, God is Real.

I will lead you into the Circle

Of the Beloved's cunning thieves,
Those playful royal rogues -
The ones you can trust for true guidance -
Who can aid you
In this Blessed Calamity of life.

Look at the Perfect One
At the Circle's Center:

He Spins and Whirls like a Golden Compass,

Beyond all that is Rational,

To show this dear world

That Everything,

Everything in Existence
Does point to God.
