Perception Is The Vessel - Poem by Eric Micha'el Leventhal

Perception is the vessel
through which this world emerges.

Seeing this,
you free the world
from the binding power of your imaginings.

Knowing this,
you glimpse the infinite within yourself,
like the warrior Arjuna beholding his Lord on the field of battle,
knowing in that moment that victory was his,
and yet that it belonged not to him,
and that there was no need to fear.

Being this,
perception itself becomes
an act of revolution.
