Mysterium Tremendum et Fascinosum

I spend my days following poems

Looking for that moment

When the doors of perception are cleansed,

Sparking revelation and

Contact with Sublime Mind,

Holding all records,

All moments,

All lives and souls,

All substance,

Visible and invisible,

All beings of light,

All vibrations and dimensions.

Take me through that door

Into the web of oneness and bliss.

Unmarked by the second hand

Of rotating, fixed time.

Unmarked by lingo and cultural artifacts.

If even for one moment of dissolving harmony

And all-knowing ecstasy,

Transcendence in light so bright and noetic

That it blinds to all truth, yet

Still reveals lasting contact and

Everlasting cleansing of

Mundane perception and pain,

The reconciliation of ego and soul,

The ascension into gratitude

While seeing through the eyes of God.
