In The Nowness Of Now - Poem by leonard daranjo

In pure consciousness
All time dissolves except
Time as a manifestation
Of the all powerful present.
To be alive is to experience
The electric incandescence
Of the ubiquitous ‘now’
Burning like an un-flickering flame
Of a candle which dispels
Darkness in its immediate surrounds.
In that globule of light
The essence of life is held
Firmly encompassed -
Transcending materiality
In a glow of joyful

    You express, in this gracious poem, the essence of all that is - when the 'noise' of mind is let go of and the reality of single pointedness is experienced. Some call it 'transformation'. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
