The Mind's Eye - Poem by George Krokos
In this world you will find it does mostly seem
that ignorance and darkness both reign supreme.
But to one who has a clear, discerning and penetrating eye
this isn’t the case even though others may question: why?
For the one who sees with the eyes of wisdom
there’s a higher intelligence working in freedom
that underlies and pervades all we see of nature
which is also one of an infinite, almighty stature.
The cosmic forces, energies or powers that rule this world are
all much the same elsewhere in the universe no matter how far.
The magnitude and scale of things surpasses most people’s vision
though the underlying similarity found may be subject to derision.
We have some means at our disposal to see things without the naked eye
and this may involve using sophisticated equipment to penetrate the sky.
There is a saying we have all probably heard that ‘the sky’s the limit’
which indicates vaguely the extent to where we can go physically in it.
But there is also another way to see, which can be done with our mind's eye,
that requires an inner awakening on a higher level and beyond the normal ply.
Various other people great and small have spoken or written something about it
and is what in part the telescope, television or clairvoyance are all products of it.
There are other worlds and a much bigger sky
that one can see through their own mind’s eye.
First one has to clear away those obscuring clouds
of ignorance and darkness that cover it like shrouds.
