“That which has form is not real Only the formless is permanent Once this is known you will not return to illusion” A koan, a quiz Let us begin by saying it like it is We bleed, we experience pain We live through loss & gain If a dream within a dream ad infinitum The dream is real within the continuum Beginning thus with a contrary view Let us rotate polarity to live anew Thought rested in intuitive stillness The external replaced with Divine connectedness As oscillations slow down Fears & desires drown There is felt within a definite consciousness shift Magnetism within rising that does uplift The essence of our being at the core Enlivening us with ineffable bliss we never felt before Our being-ness thus in permanence in stillness Whereupon we recognise the eternal attribute of formlessness The external being ephemeral The internal being eternal (19-August-2019) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Verse revisited on 23-October-2021 Setting aside speculation We make void, our orientation Taking consciousness as aliveness Recognising delusion of separateness Why then negate this offered experience So we celebrate play of illusions in innocence In, within but not of the the turbid world We meld with bliss currents unfurled Moment to moment, love entwined Vaporised, nothing to be divined

We all have a soul and a body. We should take care of both but especially the soul.
