The End

It is not the end

Of the world

It is the end

Of the illusion

The end of lies

 

It is the end

Of our faith

The salvation

Of our souls

When the truth

Of who we are

Comes to light

 

I Peter 1:9

“Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of  your souls.”

Reality

Reality influences

Everything we do

And changes us

But reality itself

Never changes

 

We cannot change reality

Only our perception of it

 

Like seeing things

For the first time

In the light of a new day

 

Reality is present

Everywhere

Underlying everything

Influencing all things

 

There is no place or time

Reality is not 

Just patiently waiting

For us to wake up

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.”

Truth

We are in the world

But not of it

 

We are in the illusion

But not of it

 

The illusion exists

Only to reveal the truth

 

At the moment

The truth is revealed

The illusion fades

And the truth comes to life

 

The illusion fades

In the light of the truth

  

St. John 12:26

“I am come a light into the world…”

 

St. John 12:47

“…for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.”

Truth and Illusion

How do we separate

Truth from illusion

 

The illusion is needed

In order to see the truth

 

The physical is needed

To see the spiritual

 

The darkness is needed

To see the light

 

To see what cannot be seen

We must first close our eyes

 

II Corinth 4:18

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen…”

 

St. Luke 17:21

“…for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
