The overlooked oxymoron

Organizations, by their
very nature, compete,
make profits, want to 
supersede each other. 
At times, they’d even
cannibalize, to survive,
or to be on the throne.

Spirituality, a journey
into the unknown,
empowers individuals
to embark on their own;
it’s an education less 
taught, more learned, 
and experienced alone.

Spiritual organizations,
therefore, an oxymoron.

Absolutely and aren’t we seeing the lack of spirituality expressed by the major corporations now!

Unless of course, we are talking about satanism. Then it fits perfectly!

An old tale – can’t recall who’s: The devil and a friend are taking a walk; up ahead, they see a man stoop down and pick something up – then pop into his pocket. The friend asks the devil – “did you see what he picked up?” “Yes”, the devil replied “a piece of the truth”. “Well, that can’t be good for you” – said the friend. “Not at all – I’ll just let him organise it”.

Anyway, I liked the poem, it speaks truth.
