The Veils

This poem is from Autumn Leaves:

 

Layers of veils

Drawn over the mind,

Shut out light of knowledge,

Shielding hope from mankind.

The first one blots out charity,

It’s called the veil of “Greed.”

The second is called “Suspicion,”

And curtails doing good deeds.

The third one is “Jealousy and Envy,”

Stops our hearts from being kind.

The fourth is “Indifference and Falsehood,”

Makes people follow along blind.

The fifth is the darkest–

It’s simply known as “Hate,”

Yet the shining light

Of Love can penetrate.

Regardless of how tightly

These veils are drawn,

They can be opened by Knowledge

As night surrenders to dawn.

Ever so slowly now,

The veils begin to part.

Understanding rushes in, beginning to win,

Over the mind and into the heart.

At last they’re completely open,

Not able to stand Love’s bright decree.

The harsh light of Truth assisted,

And together they set you free.

  1. What’s up to all, how is everything, I think every
    one is getting more from this site, and your views are fastidious for new users.

  2. What’s up, this weekend is good for me, because this time i am reading this wonderful educational post here at
    my house.

  3. Having read this I believed it was really informative.
    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this short article together.

    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and
    posting comments. But so what, it was still worth it!

  4. You ought to take part in a contest for one of the most useful blogs on the internet.
    I am going to highly recommend this blog!

  5. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get
    several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from
    that service? Thank you!

    • From WordPress IT assistance – for duplicate comments received because they checked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox issue:

      The easiest way for them to remove themselves from comment notifications is by navigating to the following page when logged in to their WordPress.com account:

      http://wordpress.com/following/edit/

      From that page, they’ll need to click the “Edit” link next to your blog name. Then, they’ll see the option to toggle the comment notification off. Here’s an example:

      If they do not subscribe through WordPress.com and instead use only email, they can still update their subscription setting by using the Manage Subscriptions link at the bottom of the email as shown here:

      Manage Subscriptions

  6. Wow! Finally I got a weblog from where I know how to actually get valuable information regarding my study
    and knowledge.

  7. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

  9. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    But think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could
    definitely be one of the best in its niche. Good blog!

  10. Ahaa, its good dialogue on the topic of this piece of writing at this place at this blog, I have
    read all that, so now me also commenting at this place.

  11. Link exchange is nothing else except it is simply placing the
    other person’s weblog link on your page at appropriate place and other
    person will also do similar in support of you.

  12. Your way of explaining everything in this piece of
    writing is in fact good, all can easily be aware of it,
    Thanks a lot.

  13. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours these days, yet
    I never found any fascinating article like yours. It’s lovely price sufficient
    for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content
    as you probably did, the net will likely be a
    lot more useful than ever before.

  14. Your way of telling everything in this post is truly good, all be able to simply understand it, Thanks a lot.
