the field is the only reality

the field is the only reality*

note to self

the big field lies prior
prior to our galaxy
prior to time and space
not a thing
but oh so real


you can rest in the big field
(the it that isn’t an it)
supported and sustained
yet admire wild paradox
and apparent multitudes

*—Albert Einstein

    This poem really touched me… got a little chuckle with the “note to self” introduction. I spent years seeking enlightenment, and although I had an out of body experience once, I have never had an actual experience of no self ( which from this vantage point I assume is “enlightenment “). Your intro helps me relax into the humor & mystery of it all because if enlightened souls still have to remind their “self” of the Ultimate Reality, then I don’t feel so bad. Thank you for sharing 😊


    1. Thank you for commenting, Heather! (I’m assuming that is your name.) I sought enlightenment for decades until I sat with Rupert Spira and Elias Amidon, who set me straight with love, humility, and kindness.
      Thank you for following my blog!

        Hi Skye, I have read a few Rupert Spira bot& seen some of his YouTube videos, but I’ve never heard of Elias Amidon… I kind of “gave up the search” & have noticed more relaxation. Your writings simultaneously inspire & calm me. Thank you, Heather
