Vessels of Mind to Purpose

By Tony DeLorger ©2012


Vessels of such complexity,

we wander life questioning only the mundane,

the superficial steps of maintenance,

rather than the appreciation of what it all means.

We invest in our work, our homes, our family,

living in the present with all the conflict and strife

of living in a commercially driven world.

But consciousness is not bound by the mundane,

not limited to a car service, shopping list or mortgage,

and in seeking to become aware of more,

we invite change, and an open-mindedness

that allows the miracle of enlightenment,

and observing the natural world,

with all its intricacy and perfection.

Existence requires responsibility,

not just from the perspective of maintenance,

and we are far more capable than just being a citizen of society,

a small link in a chain of compliance and servitude.

We are singular beings of limitless potential

and conformity alone is like the bars of imprisonment,

unless we seek further awareness and understanding,

of the core of life that lives within every cell of our being.

We are vessels of life, the carriage of something far greater

than the mundane lives we lead,

drowning in possessions and striving for status

that in the end is meaningless,

within the vast and infinite existence of time and space.

Life is our purpose, our reason for being,

not to be lost in our own creations,

but open to what life means,

to follow the selfless path of love

and abandon

this obsessive and destructive path of self.
