Creation’s imaginative Creator.
An essence essential
for eternal life.
The only true constant
which never dissembles.
An entity sustained by
A potential that is
yours alone to nurture or ignore.
What gives life
meaning: A transcendent existence.
A oneness that is
indivisible, existing now and forever.
A unique awareness
perceiving through matter … briefly.
permeating all substance integrating with flesh, blood and bones
and becoming dynamic.
- Perhaps all there is to
discover is already inside you.
- Perhaps YOU are the
only reality you will ever know.
- Perhaps developing your
spiritual potential is the purpose of ‘creation’.
- Perhaps you exist
elsewhere and are being beamed into cerebral receptors.
- Perhaps there are
supernatural beings viewing you and what they perceive is
- Perhaps ‘what’ provokes
contemplation shares an unimaginable existence in a vast
- Perhaps your
‘weathering mask’ exhibits a unique ‘signature’ determined
by your caring or self-serving habits.
- Perhaps aliens
implanted their ‘seeds’ in your ancestors; perhaps
thenceforth they imagined much as you do today.
- Perhaps your ability to
choose … your creativity … your striving for excellence …
perhaps these are hallmarks of an intrepid spirit who is
much more than just matter in motion programmed by instinct
and ruled by the vicissitudes of natural forces.
- Perhaps graciously
accepting the world’s temporary hold on you … minimizing its
demands and your desires … AND focusing with awe on all you
encounter … perhaps in this way you realize more and more
the meaningful bliss you were created for.
