The Brightest Star in My Nights

The Brightest Star in My Nights


Whenever I fly to you,

Across the infinite realms

Of imagination, I release

My fears and doubts,

And with them my attachment

To the tangible world.


As my soul drifts away

From the endless darkness

That enfolds me

In your absence,

I travel to another world

Where the sky drifts with me,

As I seek your spirit.


I see you finally and descend

Toward you, basking in the warm glow

Of the starlight which surrounds you.

You are the brightest star in my nights,

And I embrace the moment with joy

That is untouched by doubt.

About jjhiii24
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.

    That is absolutely beautiful! Such love, such surrender, releasing all fear and doubt, as your soul flies Home to your Beloved!

    Thank you for your kind words. Every once in a while something wonderful flows out of me. I really don’t think I can take credit for it completely though. Inspiration, which I believe is only partly the result of our individual talents, flows through us when we allow ourselves to feel.

    Thanks for sharing this with us John. You are the advocate of light, the comforter of darkness.

    It was a pleasure to write this. To be described as an advocate of light…someone who imparts comfort when darkness falls….may be the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.
