Surface Depth

We relate to God with surface depth... thus remaining profoundly distant from the unlimited breadth and scope of spirit... when wrongly considering, we confound immortal, never sleeping, unchangeable Divine Presence with the ever-ephemeral, retiring superficial nature of our physical bodies— (the mesmerizing entrapment of our eye-candy) Though Spirit is not separate from obvious matter, as the earth has its wealth of star (life giving warmth we absorb automatically) too often the relationship is less than literally complimentary, outer bodies hardly an accurate reflection of the purest nature of our First-cause (God The Perfect)… We consciously avoid the deeper interior, where Truth flashes (like a Time’s Square Marquee on a Saturday’s Evening); overtly chasing our hearts from Spiritual reality when Right conflicts with personal ego…prompting us to run toward the far more controllable exterior—easier to make-over a human body (Hell! We have pills for that nowadays)—for even semi-enlightened scientists are at a loss, when it comes to the soul (no definitive substance to God in a universe of man-made illusion).

No doubt seen by some as a remote academic discussion, I think that you have hit on some vital and intriguing questions here and addressed them with perception and poetic effect. For those who see themselves as mere physical bodies, it would seem ‘obvious’ that the answer lies in ‘pills’; but you have expressed it far better. Very well written! Joe.

Hi Geoffrey; who knows? I can only guess at such mystery the same as everyone. Somehow I think factual answers lie just outside of human understanding. Near enough to be an extension of ourselves, but far enough away to be alien. Someday we will find out and all be surprised together.

Hi Panagiota. I do try to make my works multidimensional. I write them with the intention of turning the light on...for less chance of stumbling as one searches life for something personally meaningful. xx
