The Non-Dual Matthew: 9:11-13


“And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, ‘Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?’  But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. Go and learn what this means, I desire mercy and not sacrifice.  For I came not to call the righteous, but sinner.”

We will not find our answers
if we ask in the oblique.

Even when we finally hear,
 real knowing will be tempered
with compassion,
and that gnosis
has been bought with our very brokenness,
the thing that allows us to
the need to speak
“help me”,
also calls us to the table.

The righteous stop looking,
they cease hearing.
Like statues in a graveyard,
they keep exacting watch over
the dead.
