Balance / Counterbalance: Poetry

Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies. We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence. Alan Watts

The universe outside is the universe inside / The soles wander one, and the soul the other / Spiritual wondering illuminates both paths / Lively curiosity seeking to dance over water and wind /As the mindstone rolls and tumbles across the firmament

Outward vision / Inward vision / Reveal the unified duality / The third eye counterbalances realities tangible and intangible / Transcendental tracks lead towards insight

Truth is the pillar on which hangs the scales / Judging whether one’s soul remains a pupae or fully transforms / The heart confirms or denies the deeds / To believe is to become / Vital spirit or dormant dullness

Awaken and see the light / As the creative fires grow ever brighter / Peer deeply into the soul-mirror and shine / Bear witness to the glory all around / In cosmic oneness
