Without Form

Before any form

Of consciousness

There is pure



That without form

Came before

That which has form


Genesis 1:1-2

“In the beginning God created the heaven and earth.  And the earth was without form, and void…”

St. John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word…”




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



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
