The analogies of what
We do not understand
Comparisons made
In the voids of placelessness…

What is a number
Where numbers have no meaning?
They describe the surface
Of the physical
Like bullets
Aimed to kill our endless
Queries of existence
But they do not penetrate
The skin of the unperceivable…

What are strings and branes and
Tangled complexities
Of space and time?
They are analogies of what
We do not understand
Comparisons made
In the voids of placelessness

If my eyes saw
The future as the present
And my body occupied
‘There’ as it does ‘here’
Then space and time lose existence
And I gain greater clarity in understanding

‘what where when and how’
Are abolished by ‘why’ or
Some other question
Of unknown form…

Why do we
Attempt to build
Our universe
From the inside-out?

As if it is rooted in our understanding of it
As if it revolves around
Human comprehension

Will we build sight
From blindness?
Can one born blind
Understand sight to begin?

As if we know correctness in our answers
As if we know when
Foundations achieve stability…

We can know nothing
Without knowing it all

Knowledge is illusionary
Focusing on strengthening eyesight
Rather than understanding perspective

Shifting perspective
Redefines all things
And the human perspective
Is feeble…

What is nothingness
But failure to understand
The substance
Of God?
What are infinities
When they end at God’s feet?

They too are illusions
And can be contained
By shifting perspective…

What is chaos?
An illusion to be dispelled
Upon a shifting or broadening
Of perspective…

What is oneness
With the universe?

It is a shifted perspective of being
Nothing more
Than a capping of endlessness

The illusion of attaining
An enlightenment that ends in ‘I’
The illusion of attaining
The perspective of Godself

It answers nothing
And is abolished by shifting perspective
Once again

This universe ends at God’s feet…

What is religion
But a capping of endlessness
Rather than an understanding of it?

The belief in God
Is not religious in nature

The belief in God
Is belief in existence and being
And endlessness
And unattainable perspective

Religion does birth hope…

So what to seek in this life
If knowledge is unattainable
And wealth is fleeting
And power is finite
And legacy dies
Within our tiny fading memories
And hope is not more
Than a game of patience?

I will seek wisdom and love
An edge in the understanding
Of endlessness
And the mind of God…

a belief in endlessness
"The illusion of attaining/ An enlightenment that ends in ‘I’"- this is my favourite line, because no true enlightenment ever ends in I, true enlightenment begins, in fact, where any notion of "I" or "you", as distinguished from each other, ends...

this poem is a myth-dispelling tour de force. reminds me of my favourite bumper sticker: my karma just ran over your dogma...

the important thing is to know how much there is yet to know, the important thing is to know we never truly "know" anything...

keep seeking. great poem.

At Gods' Feet...
I agree, from well read bible situations and believing in who and not why gives greater the meaning in hindsight of the power and mercies that befall us for,'His thoughts are not your thoughts' illusionary is a grand stand for scripture.
