The Unknown

We were once the unseen

The formless

That which was unknown

 

Like future generations

They exist now

But remain formless

And unknown

 

But just like us

Who were at one time not

But now we are

We were always here

 

Just like our future is here now

Within our children

Unfolding before our eyes

 

Jeremiah 1:5

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee…” 

 

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.”

Spirit

What appears to be is not

For it is only temporary

What cannot be seen is real

And is eternal

The formless doesn’t change

Only the form it takes on

 

+++++++++++

 

Spirit is formless

Until it takes a form

Remaining formless nevertheless

How can we measure

The depth or length or width

Of the formless

That is without boundaries

 

When the form falls away

There remains the formless

What we cannot see

What is eternal
