God and Science

Listen:

If you are humble
Before all
That you do not know --

If you are still
And quiet your mind
By the brook of Being --

Knowledge --
Knowing --
Will come
Quietly toward you,
Like a deer
On the
Opposite bank.

But if your mind
Holds no room for awe
The forest of knowledge
Remains impenetrable
The brook
Runs dry
And all creatures
All Ideas
All that might
Be revealed
Will flee from your
Heavy tread.

Awe is the source
Of the quest for knowledge
And of knowledge itself
It is the small bolt
Holding the Universe together

Awe is the space
Where the Unexplainable
Enters
Blossoms
Speaks
And is transformed

Awe is
The harbinger
Of Knowledge

And the
Wave
And Particle
Of
Life.
