If one has truly exercised free choice,
And utilized the natural faculties;
Exempted God from sandwiching His voice
Between one’s will and lustful tendencies;
Released the wounded conscience from its snare,
Through penitence and resolution new
To help illume the world by being fair
To those on whom one’s shadow once one threw;
The stage is set for synchronicity –
Coincidence which warns or else confirms,
Concerning some conclusion earnestly
Arrived at after meeting all these terms.
Such revelation’s open to that soul
Who bears his obligation to be whole.
