A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey

To my Moorish Family and the Gospel of Thomas


Split the wood

Look under the rock

There you’ll find eternity


Deep within your eyes is royalty

Salvation is a path you can take

Only if you choose it

Or you can stay here in hell


The distance isn’t for all

It’s in your heart

God is within you, surrounding you


Elevate your mind

Transcend all that the shadows taught you

Kiss the speed of light

Travel to yourself


I am one

You are too

Male is female is male

Hermetic love isn’t sealed

Study al-khem to flow to a new world


I am the divine

We are the divine

Open your eyes

Stop sleeping

Open your eyes to the heretical

The truth


Death has no power

It’s only a portal

It doesn’t even exist


Untangle the web of self

Throw out your illusion boxes

Burn the false gods


Don’t be afraid of the pain

Its part of the process

This occurs with a new consciousness

Rebirth is never easy


The spirit guides you

The spirit is you

You did not find God

The Lord already knew you


Love is free for all

Free for those who dare to experience it

I am a citizen of Zion


So are you

Only if you wish to be


Don’t miss the point

The boat you row is not your own

Essence is all


Split the wood I found you
