Westerners find it difficult to imagine
The kinds of mystical trans-theological
Experiences that Eastern cultures know well.
Science dictates our perceptions. It’s a hard sell.
So, the image of God fits not our rationale.
Therefore all theists are living in mortal sin?
It’s a way of articulating the absurd
Ways of thinking that come with the disconnection
Of God from our observations. What we believe,
Through our logic and everything that we perceive,
Is that every problem must have a solution.
Spirituality is forever deferred.
The state that one achieves during meditation
Is one where one can experience total bliss.
Symbols, imagery, and chatter that flood the mind
Fade into nothingness. One becomes not confined
By perceptions. Bad influences you dismiss
In the moment. You are at peace with everyone.
The hub of the universe is the central pole
Where stillness and movement coexist and are one.
Movement is time, and stillness is eternity.
The sense of life is realizing this to be.
It’s a resting point on your life’s journey begun.
Being there more often does wonders for the soul.
