I have a friend who believes
the central axiom of the universe,
In this interpretation,
the universe is a vessel
for the realization and actualization
And life ought to be an adherence
to that truth.
He refers to this truth
not solely as a concept
but as a being,
or perhaps more precisely,
as an I AM.
Not in the sense of the Christian God,
but in the sense of being,
of self-evidence and self-existence,
of something that couldn't conceivably
Alignment with this truth is, therefore,
its own form of eternity
A vague knowledge of the Hindu entity
leads me to believe this friend
would have done well as a Hindu philosopher.
Many of his intimations,
on this subject at least,
trace the edges
of the edgeless Brahman.
To me, Brahman seems more philosophical
It's a commentary on the universe
and those who live in it.
A belief that we are, somehow,
all unique aspects of the same unity,
and that if we looked past the inaccuracies,
through the distortions,
truth and beauty and goodness and bliss
would underlie us all.
Different weavings of the same thread.
One day, I will be joined with this truth.
And I will realize we were never truly apart.
