SOME OF ITS PARTS

     

    

…..I would venture to say that the relationship between the spiritual and physical realms is confusing to many.  I would add that there are phenomena that are generally perceived as real yet they are intangible.  Consciousness is such a case.  Most would say that thought and a perceiving self are real but, beyond the physical presence of the body and brain, there is no material substance one can associate with it.  It is a property real in itself.  One can imagine its physicality in terms of atoms and electrons yet its essence becomes manifest in its being.  The following poem addresses the unity of such etherial phenomena such as consciousness with the physical world for they are all part of the whole we might call reality.

 

 

SOME OF ITS PARTS

 

The mystic seer descended 

And spoke these arcane words

“The dimension of being is real”

( This the poets heard )

“And how this relates 

To measured things

Of time and space

Your physics will reveal

For that which seems o’erridden

Is fastened to the wheel”

 

Thus consciousness

The flame of being

Weightless 

Yet appears

And words vibrating in the air

Strike thought in those who hear
