North American Dreaming: The Act, Not Essence

William Burkholder wonders whether actions change the nature of the soul.

For lots more poems do visit Bill's Web site http://www.freewebs.com/nirvanasgate/index.htm

It is not so much in the essence of the soul,
but rather;
how it acts.

What then do we say,
to that?

For the essence of the soul
a foregone conclusion,
is God-like, graced with heavenly blessing.

Earthbound and bred
its pallor changes.
Changes based on perpetrations.

Nay not the essence,
but the acts.

The practice,
the doctrine,
The mindset.

No worries,
the essence stays intact,
but hidden behind the acts.

What then do we say to that?
