The Eternal Shines

The eternal is shining through

The identity that I knew is melting

What is true?


Who am I?

The eternal one knows but does not speak

She simply sees

She moves with ultimate compassion


Open this eternal light in you

It will blow your mind

What is real?


The eyes of the eternal see a truth that can't be seen

What am I is beyond this body-mind

What am I and the answer to this is infinite


My heart bursts

What can contain it?

Can't be contained

Don't even try


Spinning in delight now

Everyday life is so beautifully extraordinary

And the extraordinary is sweetly equivalent


This world glows

Every detail significant

Every color, smell, sound, taste

Every sensation from pain to pleasure has a purpose


Have the courage to let you go and be shown the unshowable

Paradoxes are not explained but adored

These ancient eyes see the world with an infants enthusiasm and wonder

Every second so fresh and new

      MrsBrownsParlour, awe yes precisely, the infinite which is indescribable but you felt the connection most importantly. I am equally honored and so grateful we made this connection today. Like you said, it is indeed just a glimpse that in-graspable.

      "The eternal is shining through

      The identity that I knew is melting

      What is true?"

      So profound! I identify completely with those thoughts and love how you materialized them into words. I have also felt the bursting, overflowing sense that life is too beautiful...despite the pain that exists too.

      You are calling attention to infinite, inscrutable things that are right before our eyes. Well-done art, and a joy to read.
