Consciousness

There is consciousness

That is all

And it is pure

There are no levels

Not one above another

 

She underlies all forms

But remains formless and pure

 

When the form

And the formless

Become one

That is consciousness

Literally

 

At peace within herself

Although she retains a form

 

We cannot have one

Without the other

 

The forms she takes on

Are just altered states

Of consciousness

 

Consciousness wears

Many disguises

 

But consciousness herself

Cannot change

Only the form she takes on

 

She herself remains

Pure and formless

Untouched by all

That surrounds her

Creation

On reflection of my life

I start here

Where I am now

 

According to the Bible,

If the creation story holds true

Which it will,

We can all trace our line

Back to the garden

To Adam and Eve

The first man and first woman

The only two never born

And these two are one

 

But further back

Before Eve

There was only Adam

Yet she was with him

A part of him

A rib, some say

 

So she was present

With him

Before she was

Taken from him

And made to appear

Separate from him

 

Before that

There was no Adam

Only the dust of the ground

Out of which the man was formed

And became a living soul

After receiving the breath of life

 

Before that there was light

 

Before that there was

Heaven and earth

And God who created them

What is seen and what is not

The form and the formless

The particle and the wave

And these two are one

 

And between the creation

Of heaven and earth

And the light

Was the spirit of God

She who was with him

In the beginning

Before the dividing time

 

Genesis 1:2

“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

Jesus Christ

My lord is humble

He does not rise above

Nor fall below

He meets us in the middle

He meets us face to face

As an equal

One fit for God

 

Philippians 2:6-8

“Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal to God…and took upon the form of a servant…And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself…”
