Who Am I?
I am the divine spirit flowing in and out and through the universe
I am light and darkness coexisting simultaneously;
As I illuminate I cast a shadow; the contrast is where meaning is found;
I am rain and sunshine; I’m torrid and arctic; perpetuating our survival.
I am the ebb and flow; the stillness and the vibration of life.
I am a subset and the whole; we cannot exist without each other.
I am consciousness rising and falling like the crest of the wave;
I am unconsciously waiting to awaken; I am enlighten yet naive.
I am contentment and striving; peacefulness and violence.
I am night and day; darkness and light alternating constantly;
I am positive and negative; sweetness and bitterness.
I am everywhere and nowhere; ubiquitous and rare;
I am an atom and the galaxy; minute yet all encompassing.
I am energy and stillness; powerfully calm;
I am human and God; imbue with pre-eminence and frailty.
I am manifested and obscured; revealed yet concealed;
I am visibly invisible; hidden in plain sight.
I am intelligence and witlessness; discernment and ineptness.
I am known, yet unknown; explored yet undiscovered;
I am an obvious mystery; transparently mystique.
Who am I? I am you; I am ME.
