layer by layer

the infinite light of consciousness
touches, through the filter of attention, an object;
illuminating it with its self-knowing presence…

the body, object par-excellence,
is one such vehicle lit by Consciousness
and which dissolves, layer by layer,
into a felt-understanding beyond any thinking process –
that what I Am is truly not-separate.

it is through loving attention and interest
that the thawing of these layers of lightness begin to subsume
the density and heaviness and neurotic tension
that sometimes seems to be ‘just the way it must be’;
there is a world beyond this assumption
waiting to be discovered –

all that’s required is openness, courage, love.

concepts don’t hold much weight there,
it is a path of the felt-sense,
it is a path of offering all sensation
to be returned to the depths
of the ocean of our eternal Being.
