Someone Once Told Me

Someone Once Told Me

Someone once told me
That to love people
Means to let them
Into my heart
And not to put up barriers
Against them as if
They were attacking me.

Someone once told me
That this is the way
To love the Supreme
In each other.

Someone once told me
That to love the Supreme
In others is the same
As to love the Supreme overall.

Someone once told me
To work with others
More and more
for this way,
The sweet, sweeter, sweetest
Family feeling blossoms
In my heart,
And in the heart, of others.

That Someone was
My Beloved Lord Supreme.

– Kalanadi Knutson.
