A Spirit Born To Be Yours

A Spirit Born To Be Yours

A long time ago,
In centuries past,
You and I existed
On a plane that can
No longer be reached.
It is in the past,
But it is also now,
And it is also tomorrow.

We were lovers.
We breathed the same air.
Our lips pressed together;
Our hearts beat in rhythmic unison.
I gazed deeply into your eyes.
I inhaled the scent
Which arose from your body.
I embraced the spirit inside you.

Though our bodies only touched,
And our hearts beat apart,
There was only one—
We—were—one.

Part of me was inside you.
My heart would rise,
My spirit would expand,
Encompass, and merge with yours.

It’s already happened, a hundred times a hundred times
Over the centuries,
And now, I know your spirit;
I see myself inside you.
My whole being swirls around you.

There is no now.
There is no yesterday.
There is no tomorrow.
There is only the memory of you and me as one.

I cannot say the words aloud,
Nor can I act as I might wish—
As I feel compelled to do;
For to do so, is to break the flow of life,
As it unfolds around me, and around you.

We have no patience.
We cannot say what makes all of us one.
But, with luck, you will find me.
And when you do, I will greet you with open arms,
Open heart, and a spirit born to be yours.

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.
