The Soul, Time And Eternity. - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

Since God is a spirit,
the least thing that is spirit
is nobler than all material things.

The soul is created
as if at a point between time and eternity,
which touches both.

With the higher powers
she touches eternity.

With the lower powers
she touches time.

Thus, she works in time
not according to time
but according to eternity.

(A discussion can arise whether one can speak of higher powers and lower powers of the soul. This is written only to express the relation between time and eternity. Whenever we write about the soul, we are always trying to express something which is inexpressible in words. Words are not enough to express anything about God and the Soul. That is the human limitation) . Also the Soul is described as She here just because of the absence of a good pronoun. Again the limitation of human language.

    Metaphysical to the core. But raises pertinent questions. Eternity....... It cant be gauged in words. But well crafted. Thumbs up (Report) Reply

    Nice poem. I was looking for something special to read the whole day today... For something easy and light but full of notions and discussion, deep meaning. And I`ve found a very good verse. I liked the issue and was watching a great picture while reading. Thanks. (Report) Reply
