GOD LOOKS AT GOD WITHOUT HARM

I want to be someone who, effortlessly, falls through interstices –
Who enjoys tumbling through –
Because God is alive there, and, pretty much,
Nowhere else.

You might believe a spiritual life can be built
One brick at a time –
But this is an illusion –
Instead, you’ll find you’ve only built a wall
Separating yourself from yourself.

It’s been said that no one who looks directly at God can survive –
But that’s incorrect –
No “false self” can do it –
Since artifice immediately dissolves upon the appearance of God.

Only a true self
Can look at God and survive
Because a true self is spiritually indivisible –

In other words,
“God” is able to look at God
Any time at all.

  1. Well, I have not only learned a new word today (interstices) but also learned how to pronounce it!

    If I understand, you are making the point that to see (maybe ‘feel’) God, you have to ‘give yourself over to’ rather than build it block at a time. Not sure that that is correct for everyone…certainly not myself. I think ‘the giving over’ is the penultimate step, but some people need to ‘get there’ by moving in initial (and small) steps. As the ‘self’ begins to recede, the subsequent steps become easier and easier until you realize that the penultimate step is just ‘another step’ and is not nearly the big deal we initially thought it was. In fact, I think that step happens without any conscious effort on our part. All of a sudden, you realize it has happened.

    Maybe I’m wrong.
