"The Phenomenal Transient World"
I had a thought it came from Me that internal Me the Me, that Is, I Am It traversed a world outwards from inside like the rings recorded in the trunk of a tree like the rings of water rippling skipping stones they moved on electric currents outwards into the vortex of Me, that Is I Am the non-duality the self with a choice energetic field Inside the phenomenal transient world I chose Me I come from the magnetic heart the true self attaining liberation written in the blood the secret genetic code I Am that thing, that Is Me the ultimate reality one and the same is found in the non-duality the I Am that which dwells inside the choice where time does not exist inside that I Am, that Is Me (LadyLabyrinth / 2020) for gvlm x

"Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu, Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion or cultural system. I am not from the East or the West, not out of the ocean or up from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not composed of elements at all. I do not exist, am not an entity in this world or the next, did not descend from Adam or Eve or any origin story. My place is placeless, a trace of the traceless. Neither body or soul. I belong to the beloved, have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know, first, last, outer, inner, only that breath breathing human being." Rumi "In Fact, My Soul And Yours Are The Same, You Appear In Me, I In You." Rumi "The Heart of the matter is Soul, nothing else." Rumi "You are the soul of the soul of the universe, and your name is Love." Rumi "I am the dust in the sunlight, I am the ball of the sun . . . I am the mist of morning, the breath of evening . . . . I am the spark in the stone, the gleam of gold in the metal . . . . The rose and the nightingale drunk with its fragrance. I am the chain of being, the circle of the spheres, The scale of creation, the rise and the fall. I am what is and is not . . . I am the soul in all." Rumi "Neither this body am I, nor soul, Nor these fleeting images passing by, Nor concepts and thoughts, mental images, Nor yet sentiments and the psyche's labyrinth. Who then am I? A consciousness without origin, Not born in time, nor begotten here below. I am that which was, is and ever shall be, A jewel in the crown of the Divine Self, A star in the firmament of the luminous One." Rumi

Before there was nothing. Now there is this ALL. Time is our greatest illusion. Life is as of now our greater gift. Dare we beg for more? Question is, dare we not? As we live, breathe , think and hope. As we in trepidation await that darken door to open. We create...... As always your magnificent poetry inspires this old and tired poet. A fav...

what we fail to understand (some of us) is that in "Time", we are all eternal. Thoughts and much love with you and your loved one (s) on the homefront Lindley. x

"That Atman (self, soul) is indeed Brahman. It [Atman] is also identified with the intellect, the Manas (mind), and the vital breath, with the eyes and ears, with earth, water, air, and akasa (sky), with fire and with what is other than fire, with desire and the absence of desire, with anger and the absence of anger, with righteousness and unrighteousness, with everything -

That Atman (self, soul) is indeed Brahman. It [Atman] is also identified with the intellect, the Manas (mind), and the vital breath, with the eyes and ears, with earth, water, air, and akasa (sky), with fire and with what is other than fire, with desire and the absence of desire, with anger and the absence of anger, with righteousness and unrighteousness, with everything — it is identified, as is well known, with this (what is perceived) and with that (what is inferred). As it [Atman] does and acts, so it becomes: by doing good it becomes good, and by doing evil it becomes evil. It becomes virtuous through good acts, and vicious through evil acts. Others, however, say, "The self is identified with desire alone. What it desires, so it resolves; what it resolves, so is its deed; and what deed it does, so it reaps." Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5, 9th century BCE

"Brahman was this before; therefore it knew even the Atma (soul, himself). I am Brahman, therefore it became all. And whoever among the gods had this enlightenment, also became That. It is the same with the sages, the same with men. Whoever knows the self as “I am Brahman,” becomes all this universe. Even the gods cannot prevail against him, for he becomes their Atma. Now, if a man worships another god, thinking:

“He is one and I am another,” he does not know. He is like an animal to the gods. As many animals serve a man, so does each man serve the gods. Even if one animal is taken away, it causes anguish; how much more so when many are taken away? Therefore it is not pleasing to the gods that men should know this." Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 1.4.10
