    Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu
    Buddhist, Sufi, or Zen. Not any religion
    or cultural system. I am not from the East
    or the West, not out of the ocean or up
    from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
    composed of elements at all. I do not exist,
    am not an entity in this world or the next,
    did not descend from Adam and Eve or any
    origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
    of the traceless. Neither body or soul.
    I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
    worlds as one and that one call to and know,
    first, last, outer, inner, only that
    breath breathing human being.

    I love it & I agree, except for the part I put in parenthesis.
    I believe you and I do exist, not only in body but also spiritual energy.
    That which has influence does exist.
    Maybe after this life, we are like the air that is let out of a balloon - to join the rest of the air, but still we exist, even if part of a larger whole & less individually distinguishable.

    They say what is beauty and good is only that which has the possibility of being ugly and bad. Only by the considered possible contrast, could one or the other be appreciated.

    To the poster, Beautiful!

    Here's another one:

    "I died as a mineral and became a plant,
    I died as plant and rose to animal,
    I died as animal and I was Man.
    Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?
    Yet once more I shall die as Man, to soar
    With angels bless'd; but even from angelhood
    I must pass on: all except God doth perish.
    When I have sacrificed my angel-soul,
    I shall become what no mind e'er conceived.
    Oh, let me not exist! for Non-existence
    Proclaims in organ tones,
    To Him we shall return."

    God is the Truth. The Truth is Nothing.


    Only when we lower ourselves to become the dust of the feet of all, to understand that our origin is the Nothingess(Silence from which we all derived)- can we begin to actually apply the Truth to our lives and begin the Real Path to infinity- to Truth.

    When we practice and surrender ourselves to the Truth of Nothing(has to be 100% surrender, not even just 99% which is still duality)- Duality fades- all that is temporary- pleasure and pain, light and dark- holds no value- only the Truth(the entirety which= Nothing) sets us free from the false/illusion...

    God bless you
