Materialist and spiritualist

They look at the same thing, the materialist and the spiritualist

One accepts and the other denies, everyone can see

Chasing diametrically opposite goals

Not realizing they may meet again, when the circle is complete

Living on common ground, why is their vision so different?

In one, the ego aims to fill, in the other ego tries to empty, the mind

But the scent of arrogance is the same

Each claiming the other is living foolishly

Both are collectors, one collects externally, the other internally

On the day of departure, both leave everything behind

But their pride, gross in the materialist, and subtle in the spiritualist

One who is neither leaves with nothing, joining the source of everything
