Being (R) - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

This idea appeals to me: I’ve lost my sense of
enforced individuality as electricity is a power
manifesting in infinite ways - as lightning,
unique patterns every time, within electrical
equipment, gadgets and TV sets and radios
& useful things like toasters, heaters & lights

And yet the same energy stream universally
moves throughout; now I love the intuitive idea
after death we can choose to stay separate and
physically reincarnate - or as a wave become
nonphysical and travel unfettered, MY choice
is to return to the original stream and

Join molecules flowing to the sea until my
consciousness shares all its experiences
with everything, then merge with the sea,
exist as unceasing spiritual bliss in breakers
needing to separate only momentarily
before being one with the sea again

    I guess that's no crazier than any other theory.
    After I die I'm going to find who's in charge and sincerely thank them for everything..

    I have my cosmic surfboard with
    me at all time, never know
    when I'll jump ship and cruise
    the waves and then
    blend right into the Sea
    of Love
