Beyond the Senses, Beyond the Self

Beyond the Senses, Beyond the Self
Beyond the Senses, Beyond the Self

Do my eyes deceive me,
my visions far more clear,
and are the feelings I experience,
driven as in yesterday’s affairs,
and if what I feel is incorrect,
then truly where am I,
is this reality circumspect,
or just a vicious lie?

The truth must exist in everything,
not I apart from life,
but me entangled in all of it,
one consciousness alive,
and when connected as I do
with plants and trees and animals too,
I feel as if I know them all,
they apart of me and me apart of them, familiar.

And I look to the stars, for solace,
when life is tragic and harsh,
to know that suns are apart of me,
and I the dust from where they come,
then soon, eternity is just a facet,
and I am one, an intrinsic vessel within,
and without me, existence would fall,
for I am minute as well as all.

Eyes no longer see the truth,
heart no longer decide,
but my soul is apart enough to glean,
what life in potential hides,
and through the eyes of a needle
my thoughts become just kind,
a candle light in a once dark void,
has brought me more alive.

Good intentions now rule my day,
a loving kindness from within,
to create a world I’m happy with,
one that lets go the state of sin,
for right and wrong don’t go far enough,
when a mind is willful and addictive,
so intentions are the pillars of
the release of all contentions.

Spirituality is the answer,
to kind thoughts and actions,
ones that transform mind and body,
to a world of creativity
without the burden of sanctions.

    “Good intentions now rule my day,
    a loving kindness from within,
    to create a world I’m happy with,”

    I love the whole verse, those lines make so much sense and I fully relate to that, Tony. I agree, spirituality is the answer – that is why we are here, to learn, grow, and become ever more spiritual. Great work, dear poet. Yes,, great work indeed.
