Searching For The Truth

Nothingness of negation or
Negation of nothingness...
In self, we are the negation of nothingness,
But we allow the nothingness for self.
We allow the nothingness of consciousness
As a perpetual flight of the being.
We exist in self, and we exist for self
In a Cartesian duality,
In a Latin concretum,
When the being surpasses the nothingness.
If Jesus did not exist,
The Christians would not be existent,
But Christians are existent.
No one can deny something that
Is non-existent,
As no one can deny the real essence of the existent.
The non-existent thing is a part of the reality,
Because that non-existent thing has a name.
Jesus is existent in the Christians' minds,
Though, He is non-existent in the others' minds.
So, Jesus is existent, at least, in the idea.
There are so many wars for this idea.
Moreover, Jesus Christ generated a belief
Amongst people while creating a new church.
When we deny Jesus, we have to deny His church, too,
But His Church is existent, it's real.
If Jesus is non-existent and we deny Him,
We say, in fact, that He's existent.
We can say, 'Jesus is non-existent', or

'Jesus isn't existent', but always, in idea
Jesus is existent.
God has made a way of escape through Jesus Christ.
Son is generated from eternity by the Father.
God could come into the world through a Being.
So, negation of nothingness
Lead to nothingness of negation
In a double negation.
Moreover, Jesus is necessary and essential for salvation,
In a way, in which "existence precedes essence, "
When we need to be sanctified.
Without the assertion of existence,
The negation cannot destroy it.
We have a metaphysical necessity,
While God has His necessity of Himself.
The denial of noes, which means fertilization, at Hegel,
The absolute duty to tell the truth, at Kant...
The human lies at Schopenhauer.
The existence and the non-existence,
Seemingly, an irreconcilable antithesis....


A new version of the poem:

The nothingness of negation or
negation of nothingness?

In self, we are the negation of nothingness,
but we allow the nothingness for self.

We allow the nothingness of consciousness
to be a perpetual flight of the being.
We exist in self and for self

in a Cartesian duality,

in a Latin concretum

when the being surpasses the nothingness.


If Jesus did not exist,
the Christians would not be existent,
but Christians are still existent.

No one can deny something that
is non-existent,
as no one can deny
the real essence of the existent.

Any non-existent thing remains
a part of the reality
through memories.
Jesus is existent
in the Christians' minds
and in the others' minds.
So, Jesus is existent,
at least, in the idea.
Much more, His ideas
can still change lives.
He generated a belief.
Between wars, He is love and peace
in this Church created by Him.
Those who deny Jesus
have to deny His church, too,
but this church is still existent.
It is real and very much alive.

Those who say that Jesus is non-existent
and deny that He is the Son of God
talk, in fact, about Him.
Therefore, He is existent.
This polemic doesn't end because
His essence is divine.

Through Christ and through this sacrifice
which is supreme, we become
eternal- children of God.
There is no imagined sacrifice
to replace this one, existent.
Therefore, Son is generated
from eternity by the Father.
God could come into the world
through this Being, the second Adam.
Think a little, the second Adam is the Deity!

So, the negation of nothingness
leads to the nothingness of negation in a double negation.

Moreover, Jesus is essential for salvation,
in a way in which
'existence precedes essence, '
when people need to be sanctified.

Without the assertion of existence,
the negation cannot destroy it.

We have a metaphysical necessity,
while God has His necessity of Himself-
the denial of noes,
which means fertilization, at Hegel,
the absolute duty to tell the truth, at Kant,
the human lies at Schopenhauer,
the existence and the non-existence,
seemingly, an irreconcilable antithesis....

    Marieta, I see in this and other poems of yours that you appear to be a more logically oriented person than I am. For me the intelligence revealed in creation shouts that there is a creator. With some of the feeling of this poem, you might like mine titled, On Reading a Book of Mystic Writings. -Glen

    Nothingness of negation or
    Negation of nothingness....
    If Jesus would not be existed,
    there would be no Christians.
    Denying Jesus, .....it means denials of exitence and facts... it is placing of words cleverly otherwise truth prevails all the tiem whether you deny or accept it....lovely poem and nearly to the fact....10

    read mine visiting hell....

    Scholastically penned and corroborated the dichotomous thoughts.
    Indeed a great reading. And must be TEN by TEN
