Sentient Beings

I hear the breathing during my torpor, rapacious immateriality rustling, like some raptorial raptor, like some alternative whispering. Am I sensing sentience in otherworldly form or projecting my own panic? Have I contacted unearthly norm or am I becoming chronically manic? Count me among humans incapable of messaging with any other species. Nature’s diversity makes this fact inescapable. Earth’s living order is full of mysteries. In what fog could I detect extraterrestrials? Might I be oblivious to their presence or might they enlist my manic essentials? Indeed, such beings may signal their sentience.

Watchedx any videos from Matias De Stefano, Argentinian who REMEMBERS! I say this because he may allay your fears about ET. I am glad for this poem ... sensing ONENESS with all of the Universe can be a better experience (for me, by making Jesus the Rock to which I cling. His BLOOD came from heaven - and I plead it. I often ask for Jesus to cover me with His powerful blood that scares off demons.) shalom Paz! Pacem (love the song: Donna Nobis Pacem)

Hi Anil, I will checkout the De Stefano videos. The Biblical stories of Christ portray a moral model we all could benefit from trying to imitate. There is a good question to ask for each of us. What would Jesus do?. Thanks! Shalom, Paz
