The Gift of Insight

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Surging thought often disarms an open mind,

overwhelming the precedents of logic

and functional considerations.

Ideas like bullets penetrate the inner sanctum,

questioning all that is held in high regard

and offering alternate realities.

This epiphany of diversion is both gift and burden,

hollowing out securities to accept unrealised change.

In consideration of my imagination and open-mindedness,

I often fall to the seduction of possibility,

the extremities of a plethora of fantasies.

These supposed realities of imagination,

are in fact often realised in time,

becoming real at the expense of initial reservation.

What then becomes a reality is more about process

rather than possibility,

our ability to foresee proven over time and acceptance.

Reality after all is a perception that varies for each one of us,

given credence by our own understanding and conclusions.

In my case I express what I see in detail,

rejecting all doubt and accepting projections for what they are,

the blueprints of possibility laid out to be accepted,

and to take hold in the physical world.

What can be imagined can become reality,

and more often does when belief is supported.

I am presupposed to the fact that thought creates reality,

and that we all have a hand in our present reality and circumstance.

Insight is simply the step of expressing the possibilities

that surge within our minds,

altering our viewpoint and expanding our acceptance of change.

With practice both insight and reality coincide

in time and space,

the human mind a conductor of sorts,

born of the process of gaining a complete perspective.
