Two Hundred and Thirty-Seven

To discern the truth of the reality prior to consciousness,
A determined, persistent, relatively detached,
Moment-to-moment observation,
Is all that is required.

* * * *
Eternal life will not be attained by any container
Chock-full of an incessant array of vain notions.

* * * *
Who, what, where, when, why, how am I?
Who, what, where, when, why, how are you?
Who, what, where, when, why, how is anyone?
Same source, same awareness, all dreams,
All dreaming themselves autonomous,
All dreaming themselves distinct,
All dreaming themselves real.

* * * *
You are creator, preserver, destroyer,
Witness to the mind born of time.

* * * *
You who seek it in earnest will find
The you that is me, the me that is you,
And the we that is the oneness of all.

* * * *
Any given body is but a vehicle
For consciousness play out, to dream,
Its finite journey through the relativity of time.

* * * *
Agnostic |agˈnästik| noun: a person who believes
That nothing is known, or can be known,
Of the existence or nature of God,
Or of anything beyond material phenomena;
A person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God.

* * * *
To carry history in your head, or not to carry history in your head,
Is the conscious choice between the stagnation of memory,
Or the eternal life of moment-to-moment awareness.
