Illusions swim in Reality
making, breaking, and keeping connections.
For example –
Shy person falls in love.
An experience and a story with billions of variations.
Or Deeper Reality?
So self-centered, yet
it extends out and out
to as much of the Universe
as I can be aware of.
When I make a connection
it feels real, and yet
I do not cross over.
I do not become the other.
I am always me, and
And yet at times I feel
and still less alone.
Sometimes it feels as though I actually merge.
For a while.
And then I am again
Which is the illusion and which is real?
That I am only me?
Or that the connections are Real?
Consciousness is my
We expand our reality.
We honor and accept our separateness
and our Universality.
Those who truly do
Learn to love any person
and with distinction.
Love without distinction is Oneness.
Love with distinction, mutually felt,
Is a connection.
Actually, any mutual awareness is a connection.
Love, collaboration, insight, music –
Those are the connections I crave.
But becoming more aware of the little, fleeting connections,
and the feelings that accompany them,
Do we then also become aware of, tuned into, the consciousness that is emerging from all of these overlapping, persistent and fleeting connections, from self to self to self, from group to group to group?
