The theory goes…
all that we know
is of a physical existence
in a physical universe…
and all that we perceive,
of this existence
points to this
“physicality” being true.
Without the physical body, where is the ego?
Without the physical body, where is the spirit?
Without a physical body, how do we think, feel, or even “be”?
But here’s the thing…
If the above is true, then
all that we know and can prove through experience
points to duality…
black/white, positive/negative, living/dying.
To put it simply,
we could sum it up in two words:
Life / not-Life.
But suppose the entire duality,
both Life and not-Life,
are one of a pair of other something(s).
As if Life and not-Life are both
on one side of the coin…
which is in itself a pair of something(s).
Now I’ve been pretty close to having a peek
at that other side… of the coin…
but all I saw was nothing.
So either I was’t where I thought,
was deaf, dumb, and blind,
or it’s all so beyond me
that there was no way
to experience it in a manner
that could be
“seen”, “heard”, “felt”,
or otherwise comprehended.
So back around I went…
around and around
the Circle of Life…
and here I am
But the bigger question for me is…
Who holds that coin anyway?
Or what if the coin is actually a dodecahedron?
On a related Note…
“Beauty is sweet for a short time
And then it is gone
Knowledge is precious
But we will never have time to complete it
All is done and finished
In eternal heaven
But our life here is eternally fresh
Keep that in mind, and love”
