Breaking through

Updated on February 20, 2013
Source


I heard the voice of truth speaking on the wind

despite the constant chatter... my 'mind-story' didn't win


I saw the light of heaven, when I looked at the sky at night

despite the constant brightness of fickle, man-made light


I felt the joy of reality bubble from my gut

despite my aching heart and time-bound endless rut


I smelled the perfume of eternity, on a single flower on earth

despite the force-fed fury of greedy, floral births


I touched the face of innocence, pure in its open love

despite the veil or ignorance thrown around us both


I realized that life and love is more than all my senses

that is when I broke through all my mind's defenses


I understood the truth despite my mind's confusion

that love really does move mountains and dissolves all self-illusions


Life is really wonderful!l Take a chance and you will see...

Just open up your mind, and let your spirit free!
