The Substance Of Life Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

The Substance Of Life

Rating: 5.0

I am mesmerized by the substance of life
It's not the cellular biology that I have fallen for
The cytoplasm and the intracellular spaces
The golgi bodies and the nucleus
The vesicles and the ribonucleic acid
It's not even the physiology of the human body
That ignites my consciousness
Or the anatomy
That gives me ecstasy
Or the complexity of the human mind
I am hypnotized by the substance of life
Not the flowing of human emotions or thoughts
It's the Silence within
That bewitches my being
Into a beautiful state of nothingness
Allowing me to be the substance of life
In this state, I am neither here nor there
I am not in the mind or body or soul
I am poured on the bowl of existence
I am the everlasting fabric of Love
I am the solid state of peace
I am the molecule of eternity
It's not a place for dreams or thoughts
It's a place beyond life and death
It's a place of unexplained unconditional Love
An ocean of awareness unfolded
Deep inside the human heart
The substance of life has so much to tell
If only we could listen to the silence within
We will know the extent of our being
It's not the radius or diameter of our consciousness
It's the absence of perimeter or geometry inside our hearts
That submerges me into nothingness
Giving me peace, joy, hope and love


This poem is the substance of life.

Since my belief in God, I meditate (aka my Silent hour) to God and tell Him what I wanna say that hour. Each day anew with other inside demands.

How do you distinguish between the act of praying and meditating?
