After meditation

microcosmI saw: the wonders of the human being -

The blood, the veins, the cells, the heart,

The heartbeat and the brain,

The alchemy of digestion,

And all the complex wondrous beauty,

The living complexity, the profound harmony,

The pulsing, breathing, flowing, rivers of life.

 

I saw these wonders as Divine creation,

As if in a deep red mist -

I saw the created world,

And knew it as Divine creation;

It took my breath away,

To see and breathe all this.

 

I also saw that we – as humans,

Are the self-awareness, the self-consciousness,

Of this creation.

 

We come from God, we are of God,

So we can see all creation and ourselves.

And in this seeing there is knowledge,

Since if we see the wonder of the flowers

And the trees, and the wonders of the human brain,

And heart, and senses, we are seeing

There the multiple faces of creation, and hidden there,

(Hidden deep within),

The single face of the Creator.

 

There is a profound stillness within all activity,

And an absolute silence within all sound,

There is a vastness in the smallest thing,

And an awesome strength in the most fragile.

 

We humans are the eyes of the creation -

We can look at ourselves,

And look in ourselves,

To know our Lord.

 

The human consciousness

Is vaster than creation, and God

Is vaster than His creation,

So this is why the human being

Can apprehend the Divine.

 

But as humans we can also deny the Divine-

Pretending to know what we do not know.

I am not saying that this consciousness

Is inevitable, only that I saw…that it was possible!
