Spiritual Poetry: Journey to the Center of the Soul

Spiritual poetry: “journey to the center of the soul”

Liam

I too have traveled

True, wide and further

Mountains traversed, oceans crossed and deserts wondered

Only after I

immobilized my body

Literally stopped moving

Did true journey begin

This was truly amazing

Not the movement of a muscle

Nor the twitch of an eyelid

Yet, it was further away than I’d ever ventured before

I decided

To make the journey to the very deepest

The very most hidden core of myself

It was a journey, for it was not made in a day,

Took weeks, took months where I meditated quietly

Each time returning with insights

Firstly

The treasure of my past,

in its detail, in its glory

It’s pain and its healing

Thereafter things became different

I wasn’t going somewhere

I was becoming something

Merging with a field of energetic possibilities

It is a melting

It is a dissolving

It is an absorbing

Funny,

In this, never for a moment

did I lose that.

That which is intrinsically me

That which was, before my birth

That which will remain after leaving this sheath

This was my guide as I vanished

This was my keeper as I merged

This was the center of nothing

This was the core of peace

This is the journey I began

I am and forever will be

traveling.
