The Blinding


“I can feel it coming

In the air tonight

Oh lord …”

 

And now for something completely indifferent …

 

Can you close your eyes and have vision?

Can you stop your mind so you can think?

Can you feel outside your senses?

Can you imagine what you already know?

 

The following is but a passing possibility …

Tis nothing but a nonsensical breach …

Tis by all accounts a dream without sleep …

A fleeting whim …

 

So should you feel adventurous or bored …

Take this trip along me for the giggles …

And stop all thoughts …

And close your eyes at every opportunity …

 

And imagine this …

 

Imagine there is a sphere …

This sphere is dark like a black ball…

This sphere is devoid of light …

This sphere is real …

This sphere is what we perceive as our universe …

 

Now imagine if you could …

That you could step away from your own forest …

Step away from your own dark sphere …

So you can observe your own dark bubble …

Away from our dark universal forest …

 

And when you do …

You notice this …

 

That the dark sphere which we call our universe …

Is enveloped by another sphere …

There’s another bubble surrounding our dark bubble …

And it is made of light …

 

A light so bright it is blinding …

A light so bright and so beautiful …

A light to end all lights …

A light that is more your true self than your true self …

More all of our selves than our true selves …

Our home light …

Our beacon …

Our way home ….

Our ONE …

 

Now imagine the intelligence …

The intelligence that made this so …

So close yet so far …

The obstacle it put before us …

Our true self hidden in the self …

 

What clue would it give us to make our way home?

What does it say?

What does it mean?

 

If you have come this far, perhaps you will consider this …

 

There is a dark sphere …

There is a dark bubble …

And it is enveloped by light …

 

How do we know?

 

THE STARS!!!

 

If there was a dark bubble enveloped by light …

And one, the one, the intelligence, were to clue those who dwell in darkness that light surrounds them …

He would make pinpricks in their dark bubble so that they could glimpse the light from the light that surrounds them …

 

THE STARS

 

They are the pinpricks …

So bright is the light that surrounds us that the smallest pinpricks of light, our stars, fill our dark bubble with light.

 

I have no idea if this is cosmospiritually true …

But in a universe in which that which is outside of us is the path to that which is within us it is as true as true can get …

 

Because in this case it is true of us before it is true of our universe …

You know this …

I know this …

It is our primary knowledge …

 

We dwell as tourists in our darkness …

Surrounded by light we are so close to we can taste it …

So close yet so far …

 

Too good to be amateurs not good enough to be professionals …

Existential limbo …

 

I don’t want to start any blasphemous rumors …

All this is is a childish thought …

 

But in this moment it feels right to me …

 

What we see is what we see …

The light … the light envelops us … and we know it is there because the stars tell us so

  1. Wow S-Dog, I never realized how good a poet you were…. I am duly impressed, almost makes it feel better having lost to such a wordsmith in the last debate 😉
