Stand still

Stand still
know the world
Is not you.
Listen
you will hear it.
Look
you will see it.
Reach out
you will feel it.
Your path
your mountain
your orbit-
your lions.
They are
not mine and
mine are
not yours.
And
The guiding light
of your orbit
sheds illumination
upon my own.
And we join
and become
and merge
millions of lives
colliding stars
called humanity.
Hopeful and hopeless.
Mortal and immortal.
Goodness and Evil
Growing and dying.
Wonderous and terrifying.
Jealous Angels hover.

Right! I like the message of this. For sure you is not me and vica versa - the notion of modern alternative religion which says the whole world is united in us if we feel "the source" is stupid. So let us be stars. I would love to be a star. :-)
