An Abyss Of Faith - Poem by Lynn W. Petty

I leapt from the precipice of reason into the supernal abyss of faith.
Uprising on the winds of mystical contemplation,
Discharging all senses and actions of thought,
I came into a darkness, a darkness that is beyond light,
Without seeing and without knowing, to see and to know
That which is beyond sight and wisdom.
Through the abstraction of the essence of all perception,
I rose into a void of nothingness, the quintessential darkness,
That outshines and obliterates the light of all rational things.
A darkness, not caused by the absence of lumination,
But, caused by a profusion of light that blinds
And dazzles the spirit with super radiance.
Unaware of ego and self, I was beyond boundaries
And limitations, free of physical obstruction.
I was veiled in an obscurity of permeating and profound
Secret silence. In the eternal calm, I realized the Divine Principle
By which all living things exist. I found myself,
The I Am of the He Is.
