I Carries Me

Updated on August 17, 2011

"I" Carries "Me"

Myself and “I” we went for a walk late one night in dreaming.

We walked and talked along a beach and “I” was full of feeling.

“I” showed me scenes from a life lived in a dream and asked me many questions.

Who is the “I” who spent his waking days imagining and seeking imperfection.


Myself and I we talked and talked as we walked along that shore serene.

“I” would point and we would view each scene lived in a dream.

Why choose to dream when you could feel it all in waking life?

I knew nought else imagining no other way to survive my thoughts of strife.


“I” showed me how choices were made while in oblivion I did reside.

Life had passed me by when all the while in thought I chose to hide.

“I” whispered in my ear in a language I had forgotten.

Wake up and know this truth that I am you and you are my son begotten.


There is no me and you as is Man's way to imagine separation.

There is only “I” and “I” is love and it all resides in life's imagination.

Once more brave heart will “I” send you forth to wake from your sleeping mind.

Shed your clothes and wear a skin “I” now weaves for you in kind.


Live again in another time another place that “I” is now creating.

The beach it changed before my eyes, wind and rain abating.

Be still you all and know the truth my son is “I” and he comes again.

Knowing as in a flash the truth he cried another life emerged from within.


How many times must we dive back into this earth to learn what man has forgotten?

It matters not because “I” will patiently wait for his son who resides in skin and wrapped in cotton.

So “I” continues to carry Man on back through lifetimes of illusion.

Waiting for the day when Man awakes and realises that “I” and me are love in collusion.

      Beautiful way of expressing I and ME. I am grateful to Epigramman for directing me to a hubber who has such beautiful thoughts. Would be a delight to follow/read your insight into various aspects of life.

      Have tried to address ME in a positive way...hope you enjoy it!

      ...I simply love your poetic state of mind here - if I could frame it - it would remain forever in the Louvre - and I could keep coming back and look at in a different way and in perhaps in a different mood - because as you know 'everything' in life is 'relative' - and that's what great art is all about (writing included) ...when you come back you can see/read something different because of its complexity, depth and soul (searching)

      Hi, this is wonderful, the subconcious mind, the I or id, does talk to us when we sleep. I travel to many places in my dreams and know that is what is the real me, but in awakeness life boxes you in, I am sure we have been around and around many times, maybe we will learn from it eventually, cheers nell

      Lucid dreaming, right and left brain hemispheres; or two people inside one mind if one prefers. Jesus residing in you. The minds perceptions; or illusions being shown reality and happiness by the essential intelligence, the 'immutable' person. The matrix of re-birth from the fine matter field.. The means justifies the end if the means harms no one else and if that end is enlightenment and peace within the essence of the true creation.

      Alastar, I appreciate the time you take to mull over the things I write. That kind of consideration is priceless. Thank you buddy, I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

      Whatever gets you through the night, its all right, its all right. You know I'm up-front. Read that remarkable poem: watched half the vid: then looked at your tags and the comments. I need to meditate again, perhaps later on today, maybe tomorrow. Then will be back to finish vid and comment again my friend. Gets a vote up for sure and interesting for now. And some more later no doubt. But I need some pondering.

      Spirit Whisperer.....this was beautiful. I am speechless. I am always in the way of myself. Instead finding the good things about my life, I am always reflecting on the bad. It is definitely time for me to wake up. This has sincerely touched my heart. Thank you for sharing. God bless you.
