REASON

REASON 

“…For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 
2 Corinthians 4:18


Reason,
Wise charioteer of 
Our senses,
Firmly into your
Hands hold my
Perception ’s bridle
And guide my galloping 
Insight 
Onto the veiled 
Path of reality that, 
Among a myriad trails
Of phenomena unfolds
Undetected by corporeal
Eyes, 
Steer my understanding 
Towards the ethereal 
Heavens, I plead,
SO my mind able 
Would be 
To 
Glimpse the ETERNAL!

    Very interesting and deep! :) But...sometimes reason comes up empty handed. Spiritual things are spiritually discerned says the Word. For that we need the spirit of God!.....I'm just being silly in my little world of philosophy, Demetiros! :) You are very wise indeed!

    Dear Eileen, God gave us this tool,reason, to use for to discern between phenomena and noumena (object of a non-sensible intuition, Kant). Reason, here, is the starting point of inquiry. Later on though, as you see,I plead reason to guide My insight through the unseen path for to see the Eternal. We should not confuse Philosophy and Religion for, as you know, the one is Deductive and the other Inductive. Thank you for your Comments!

    ...Synonymous with wisdom. True, whatever we do is guided by our reason, how it percieves. But reason has its mighty counterpart - instinct.

    Reason is the tool, wisdom the outcome, instict is innate knowledge that needs justification! Thank you my friend!
