Dancing in The Light

Here I stand, the passing of the universe,
the result of billions of years of physical evolution
and Spiritual endeavours.

Am I just flotsam
on the Stream of Inevitability?

I am an unborn child attached to the Mother Earth,
for some of these molecules which now gather and flow
collected as 'me', were moulded by Her fires and Her seas.

These atoms through which I now see are ancient,
once they may have been the very ground
on which we weave our paths,
and now my energy gives thought,
voice and sight to the rocks.

I am a centre of cosmic activity,
a disturbance in the quantum foam
where mind meets matter.

I am a doorway to multi-dimensions;
through me the planet thinks and deludes itself
with sleepy ignorance and illusions of separation.

But evolution does not stop,
and like water to water,
the pools of thought slowly reach out
finding each other,
and an awakening begins.

The way we shape our individuality,
yet unavoidably connected,
affects the quality of the Whole picture.

As I let the sand spill through my fingers,
it is my own fineness that I feel,
and when I taste the gift of nectar,
it is my own sweetness that is on my lips.

When I hear the comfort of the songbird,
I am listening to myself,
when the flowers bless me with their fragrance,

I am Nature
talking to myself,
and I begin to understand
what I am saying;

"I am the Temple of Spirit,
where worship is paradox.
I am Nature, nothing
is outside of Me."

As I stand here, I am the Universe
looking back at itself,
becoming self-aware.

Who am I?

I am You.
