That Sacredness

15 comments

 

 

There is an immeasurable energy

       a sacredness that cannot be created or destroyed

       and it is a field beyond thought/thinking

Its essence is an indescribable eternity that is

       beyond words and mere mental patterns

It rarely visits the realm of man

When it visits

      it fills the cup of the mind/body for a while

       and departs as quickly as it arrives

       but leaves some perfume of itself

        that forever affects the mind

Its intrinsic order will not visit a concocted silence

        nor any copied meditation

       nor any secondhand distortion or twisted corruption

It is of an immense intelligence

       beyond fragmented limitation and stagnant beliefs

It is not of the separative fabricated religions and countries

        that divide man

Thinking is always “about” energy

Thinking is never (the actual boundless energy

        with all of its holistic beauty)

Thought/thinking is limited fractional

        and symbolic

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  1. You have the deepest thoughts and such a way with words. I try to grasp the subtleties of your thinking but Alas,my mind is not at the same level as yours

  2. Thought provoking Tom.💛 I believe this boundless energy is already within us. Its only our thinking mind that prevents us from feeling it. So in this way it doesn’t really visit – It becomes known when we open our mind and hearts to it.

    • Thank you, Val but belief has no place in what i am writing about. 🙂 Don’t believe it! Discover for yourself. This belief thing has been going on for eons, with people saying it is buried in each one of us… yet they go on endlessly exploiting gullible people regarding this and regarding innumerable other things. Additionally, it cannot be, as you suggest, “known”; it is too vast and immeasurable to be grasped within the limited container of knowledge. Neither is it in the realm of, as you suggest, “feeling”; it is far beyond feeling (involving the senses and imagination), which, too, are limited.

      It is, from what happened here, most definitely a visitation.

  3. There is an empty space within us all, a space that most spend their life attempting to fill. When we allow this emptiness to remain empty, and we sit with it, observing it, coalescing into that emptiness within – it is then we realise that this emptiness is both empty and not empty, filled with the boundless, the ineffably enduring, the indescribable unity of which I see you speak. Your verses are wonderfully wrought, thank you for writing it.

  4. Thank you for the ‘thank you’, bluejay! 🙂 What people add to this comment section (beyond what i wrote, other than “thank yous”) is not what i often go with, including here. “Remaining empty” is a time-based supposition (and desire) that has little to do with actual emptiness; additionally, it is not something that can be observed (or sat with). One cannot even recognize that one is actually empty; it’s beyond the field of recognition/knowledge. Additionally, such emptiness cannot be what one can (under any circumstances) “allow”; conditioned reactions cannot, despite what they might think, allow anything unconditioned.

  5. I agree with what Fallcorn1936 says. 🙂
    I love your photo of the lichen; just think how many years it must have taken to grow that big.
