The Non-Dual Matthew: 7:21-22

7:21-22

On that day, many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and cast out demons in your name and do many mighty works in your name? And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”

We cannot heal in another’s name—
as if it were a talisman,
a fetish
an object to be manipulated
at a distance.

One source runs through us all,
living water,
splashing and forming anew
in each of our unique sinews and cells.
We do violence to ourselves when
we think ourselves merely
empty cups,
open mouths,
crying forever
to be filled.

Would you prophesy and cast out demons?
Then you will need to know and wield 
your own true
Name.
