Echoes of the Moment

Before I was able to relinquish my tenuous grasp on consciousness
after working through the night,
The irresistible call of the spring morning sun
pulled my heart and mind to delay fitful sleep
for a moment of blissful, temperate contemplation
of the season’s gifts; waves of sunlight,
gentle breaths of wind, tranquil murmur of memories–

Echoes of the moment.

The sun’s radiant beauty streaked across the void
to reach for my face like the hand of a dear friend,
whose warm and comfortable touch soothed my
most troublesome aches with loving thoughts.
This day, the whispering breeze persuaded my hair
to allow my face to experience its whispered touch,
to sense the eddies in the flow of air, and to tickle my neck.

Echoes of the moment

Birds click and coo pleasingly in the distance as I close my eyes;
Inside me, staring contentedly at the blazing red surface of
closed eyelids, I enjoy the passing refrain of a distant train,
competing with a buzzing lawn mower down the street,
And the echoes of the moment in my consciousness.
The cat wants to have my attention, but I’m not ready,
So he finally lays at my feet like he’s always been there.

Echoes of the moment.

Way back in 1973, as a young man embarking on the journey of a lifetime, I experienced what Carl Jung described as “the eruption of unconscious contents,” which compelled me to seek the path I continue to pursue to this day. The path of discovery has led me through an astonishingly diverse range of explorations in philosophy, science, and religion, as well as the many compelling ideas in the literature and scriptures of the cultures of the world. There is, in my view, a compelling thread made up of components of each, that runs through the fabric of life. The nature and study of human consciousness has been a compelling subject for me for more than twenty years. I have spent a great deal of my time and energies trying to come to terms with my own very particular “inner experience” of life, and to somehow understand how the events and flow of my temporal life have directly been influenced by the workings within. Sharing what I have come to understand about my own “Inner Evolution,” has tasked my intellect and communications skills in a big way. I am only just beginning to feel confident enough in the results of my study and contemplation to express the many various aspects of what I have uncovered within myself. I am hopeful that my own subjective and personal experience of my own “human spirit” will resonate with others, and encourage them to explore their own.
