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

Time

Time is nothing more

Than a sequence of events

Each one affecting the other

 

Through time

Things become things

Yesterday becomes today

Today becomes tomorrow

 

We all live within time

But perceive differently

Depending on where

We are looking from

At what point in time

 

Things have a way of

Looking differently

As time passes

The word of God

Does not change

Just our perception of it

 

The Word of God

Transcends time

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.”
