Trauma

“joy or pain, neither seek nor resist vaporise to become, a bliss mist” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Turbid storms in realm of duality Inevitably will bring to us pain Fearful contractions mar serenity Unless fickle ego, to rest is lain Pain bemuses whilst joy hypnotises Either way unstable is our fulcrum Truth being life is full of surprises Trauma we feel, ego residuum Interim measure, hypnotic healing Wherein one thought displaces another With thought polarities thus rotating Attention deflected, pain we smother Neither suppression nor sublimation Both propositions are inadequate Ostrich syndrome not the solution For how many fears can we thus placate It is not trauma then but our response Determining state of our consciousness Thus, looking at identity askance We shift into calm silence and stillness An open heart is all that is needed Receptive to divine love magnetism Unbound if ego urges receded Each node within, joyous sensorium Awaken now oh hermit, from slumber Enjoy this movie, with childlike wonder 06-December-2020 (syllabic rhyme)
