To Would-be Gnostics

Michael Peach

To merge one’s Soul with the Great Light is good,
But to abjure as a result the body,
Psyche and spirit is to opt for Death.

Better to strive for individuation,
Where God is served by the whole, living person –
Composed of  Soul, fire, water, air and earth –
In the Garden he or she knows well is home.
