The Chant

Natural Rythms

The pure sound is superior to spoken word.
If I touch but the word, I touch only meaning.
But to contact creation, the unfettered voice
Is one method approved of by popular choice.
An alignment transformative chanting will bring.
A relaxed and refreshed state is greatly preferred.

Giving meaning to everything, verbal software
Floods the mind – the fine fuel pump of rational thought –
With too much information of value only
To the abstracted ego. The not side of me
Benefits from no meaning much more than a lot.
Words have their place but often the mind they ensnare.

The essence of creation is what is called sound.
It has no other meaning than that it exists.
The blueprint of creation is contained within
And throughout all the universe. All are akin
To the basic vibration which surely consists
Of all that is perceivable everywhere found.

There’s no meaning in meaning. The sense that I make
Of the sounds that surround me is simply not real.
The vibration is heard and felt. It offers peace
To myself, and it is but the proper release
Of whatever tension the ego may conceal.
Beneficial it is for feeling more awake.
