Come with an open mind

Come with an open mind.

Come with an open heart.

Isn’t that what we mean by education?

 

So why use language that

shuts out emotion

that makes no connection

that speaks institution to institution

not human to human?

 

Come with an open mind.

Come with an open heart.

Let inside the stories of connection.

 

Leave outside the jargon that

only obscures meaning

that restricts understanding

that jeopardises the joining

of mind to mind.

 

Come with an open mind.

Come with an open heart.

Discover the invisible grail.

 


A poem by John Simmons, inspired by the possibility that the essence of Invisible Grail could be distilled through poetry. John is a Director and Programme Facilitator at Invisible Grail.
