I Believe Before Everything Began, Before Time Comments

Rating: 5.0
The page is blank, pen is poised.
Before time, before things happen,
there was nothing, save for a void,
a nothingness, a emptiness, no life

This one is refreshing. The mind behind it is wise. All men need to recall their roots thus they will be able to live in harmony like it was the mind of God. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome Bob - in the calm beauty of creation, insignificant as it may seem in this great universe, we are indeed part of G-ds plan

An epic piece which is full of reflections of time and for once I am lost for words, I can imagine the little boy sitting in the chapel thinking about all these things, Deg 10 Lynda xxx

Very deep and thorough reflections on the passage of time, eons ago before the birth of the planets and the consciousness and the hand of God in the process... You cover so much in these lines including philosophy and spirituality...a very commendable piece that must have taken a lot of time and thought to write...Excellent 10++++

A carefully considered and eloquently expressed tale about the beginning of time - a tale that has been told by so many different cultures in so many different and interesting ways over ions. Your central theme is pivotal and unequivocal - that we are all one; that there is no separation; that we are all responsible for the wellbeing of the most insignificant as well as the most significant. I nodded my head in recognition as I read your words - familiar and yet unique, as all creative expression must be. There is an optimistic thread running through your words Bob, which I relate to and applaud. Thank you for sharing this. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

You cover some great ideas and areas here Bob. The main theme is spiritual evolution (in my humble estimate.) I see this in reality only in the idealistic sense of 'spritualism'. I hope if a casual observer of this riotous shitstorm is watching, he/she/it appreciates the wonderful inventions we've conjured and forged to produce a killing capability only a mad inventor would appreciate. As a race we are crazy naked apes. Even the ones who pretend to be humble and holy are as insane as any soldier on the battle field. The paternal order is entrenched deeply in our psyche and has shaped the world and 'God 'in a way which benefits big daddy. In this country the senators and congressmen are all pitching for the corporate team and their only role now is to protect and maintain wealth and empire. Not the common wealth of country and people but the detached and marginalized captains of industry who have utilized a banking and credit system as complicated as the workings of a swiss watch to enslave and exploit the Eloy like naive citizens who garner their knowledge from corporate news. All of this worship of money and killing for it in the name of God and Freedom leaves little energy for the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment. If the one God produced this nuthouse of the Universe from nothing, think of what we could have been had he/she/it something to work with. Your poem is inspiring and hopeful and perhaps that's what we all need as individuals and nations.

Wisdom unrestrained here, Flowing as she pleases between astonishing reflections and wonderful lines, All this made possible by life’s spirit which flows unbroken through all that it has created and all that it will create. It is the current of life’s creation, How wiser can someone, A happy person, Can be! ! I wonder! !

'A word is written, history opens' This particular line.. got framed into the middle It just balances the first half of this poetry and the rest. Dear poet... its just superb write And do you know... where have you taken a reader like me? ? ? To tell you with all my sincerity... Into a perfect 'word musium' Where each word... i re-read To perfectly catch this phenomenal theory of silence and beyond. Wonderful...Thrilled to read this.

You have such amazing insight into spirituality, the oneness of us all, and going back to creation as you have, it sets the scene for us to comprehend what comes after. So many of us have a different perception of God or the great infinite source of love, but you cover this all in your poem. You have put so much time and thought into this amazing poem, and I shall take a copy to read over and over. Thank you for your wisdom and marvelous writing skill. 10 love Karin

It is so rare to read a poem with this power and presence. Its scope is vast, and by going back to the very moment of creation from which every individual or poetic work has descended, has almost a mystic eloquence...thanks a lot, Bob.

Before time was - - at the edge of creation - this thought needs attention as your fine saga takes the reader through the stage of 'in the Beginning' - - and Bob the reading has delighted me with fresh spirited enthusiasm for all things natural..... we on earth are truly 'one Soul' and when we realize who we are then shall peace reign..... a wonderful piece.... thank you 10 ++ + Fay

GOD alone existed in the beginning...without a second...no life another was there to recognize HIS existence until HE blasted out his creations through the Big Bang...HE exists with all HIS creations and would continue so, even after HE withdraws everything into Him on deluge... You are a poet philosopher and intellectualist, Bob...thanks for your wonderful write...10

A fine work of art on our origins Bob. If we could only rewind the video of life and see how it all began back then in our universe what lessons we could learn!
