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

primary
immediate
eternal
infinite
open
transparent
lucid
awake

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
