Human Consciousness…

First, there is consciousness,
then thoughts that create our world,
the universe and everything,
and each touch of the divine, epiphany
or pictorial message to the consciousness,
a trigger to reality as we understand it,
yet a reality perpetually evolving,
changing with our every consideration.

Each form, display, and manner by which
we learn is perceived as we ourselves create it,
a means to an end, and the more we see,
the more we begin to know
that our part in what we see as a life,
is forged by our own souls,
each circumstance the detailed limits
of our possible acceptance.

We are spirit, bound within a limited shell,
experience governed by physical senses
and for some on a spiritual path,
the truths in time rise to consciousness,
not the circumstances, the movement,
the actions or consequences,
but the underlying intentions
and the heart’s will to aspire to purity.

We may debate this and that,
possible scenarios and processes,
but in the end all of it is superfluous,
for it is the intention only that matters,
that evolves a soul to higher thoughts and understanding,
and no matter perceived rights and wrongs,
none of it detracts from a positive intention,
one seeking a righteous outcome.

As humans our worse case scenario is death,
an early death rather than a natural process of deterioration,
yet even death is just transition,
one form to another in an infinite life path,
and pain is just relative, its affect
the result of expectation and belief,
suffering is just another experiences
on our journey of existence.

Very little matters on earth,
apart from how we choose to think,
our daily lives, and all physical aspects unimportant,
as all that counts is the way we think:
to be kind, be empathetic, be compassionate,
be understanding and above all things, love freely,
that is the spiritual path
and the eventual destination of our soul.

Consciousness then is the key to reality,
the physical life just smoke and mirrors,
and the more we become complicit in its detailed unfolding,
the less we realise it is just the result of thought,
the true reality is the spirit, our intentions
and the manner in which we deal with life,
each aspect, experience and obstacle,
just a veil to what’s is actually taking place.

    Excellent work on this life lesson, Tony. Yes, we are spirit. We are simply travelers, Earth being one of our stopping points where we learn and grow ever more spiritual in our ascension, our life path. I feel so good, and so right, when I read your works like this, for it just all settles in place. Take care.

    I’m glad, the truth is a powerful thing, not for the mind but the soul. Our heart tells us what settles and what is discarded. Glad you enjoy my expressions. Take care Phyllis.
