While we are straining our minds
to find purpose here on earth,
life is indeed passing us by,
moments of epiphany the drive of every day
within the blessing of experience,
not finding some farcical esoteric meaning,
but simply being alive, is all we must do.
The road is arduous,
some paths long, others shorter,
but regardless of direction, of scope,
tis our participation that gives us
experience and hope,
lessons gleaned and learned from circumstances,
the guide in our perspective, manifest.
Our connection with earth, physically,
is our part to play in a symbiosis
that sustains earth as well as us,
energy the nurturing, the sustaining,
as we in consciousness follow paths
to aspire higher thought and action,
in a quest for spiritual ascendancy.
The natural world holds answers to our questions,
the reality of life itself,
and religions and philosophies just muddy the waters
of our true being, our connection to life,
and while we devote our minds to processes
bound by egos, hierarchies and dogmas,
we waste time, rather than be immersed in reality.
Reality is what ‘is’, the unequivocal truth of being,
where no thought can justify or explain,
beyond the acceptance of being alive,
and in that acceptance we simply live,
experience all we can and learn to understand,
strip ourselves of narcissism as best we can
and quieten the soul’s hunger.
In this cause happiness abounds,
where self is not the center but an aspect,
and thirst is just a need to maintain,
and in balance and harmony,
we connect to life on every level
to share, to support our environment and all life,
in an exchange of loving acknowledgement.
