The Very Proof

No one can give you their experience, only point you in a direction. What you are cannot be seen directly, has no objective qualities, and defies description. I am so grateful for the medium of poetry as the act of composing always brings a deep peace and clarity.

Sequestered

This poem was read today in a live meeting and it was suggested (thank-you Ron!) that it might be the first of two… this poem illustrates a turning inward to knowingly abide as THAT.

Thank-you for the inspiration Stella! This poem, as many, arose from nowhere very quickly. Experientially we are sure that ‘I Am’… and in the absence of identity, prior to thought, there arises pure potential.
