Dear Spirit Being,


I look into your eyes,

   and I see more.


In the depths in your eyes

   I recall my own Oneness

   with All. I remember you

   where and when

   we had no names.

No hands. No feet.

No stuff. 


I remember Oneness,


   and Life



Be not deceived 

   in this realm of senses.

You are more!


The evidence of your senses,

   regardless of scale,

   erodes. You endure.


You animated bits of matter

   for your experience here,

   and acquired a bit of amnesia

   as to why you came.



In your journey

   of discovery,

   be not seduced

   by the impermanence

   of matter. It’s erosion

   is not your fate.

   You are more.


Even your forgetfulness

   has not diminished

   your capacity, 

   your Being in All.



You have power and dominion

   over your experiences.

Exercise them.


You are forever

   One with All.


Thank you,

Glorious Spirit Being.


My glimpse 

   into your eyes,

   your boundless

   expression of joy,

   remind me

   of my own glorious identity.



   what you are.


You are more.
