Once upon an Eternity

Once upon an Eternity

There was a Heart

Inside the Heart was hidden a Nature
But
the Nature of the Heart was kept a Secret
And so
the Secret Nature of the Heart became a Mystery

People called the Mystery “God”

They called it Invisible and Untouchable

trying hard to figure out
why they could not figure it out

They desperately yearned to Know the Secret

Their yearning made them feel Empty
Feeling Empty made them yearn even more

The more they tried to figure out the Mystery
The more it eluded them

Very soon they were trapped in a world of Illusions
And God lost its meaning to them

for they had forgotten to Feel, through all their Figuring Out
and, through all their Wondering and Wanting,
they had forgotten just to Be

The language of the Heart is Silence

It dwells inside all
connecting all
it can never be known in full
or perfectly comprehended

It, instead , is to be experienced like a shooting star
in flashes of moments of feeling
no beginning and without an end

Being
Feeling
Alive

Once upon an Eternity

Artist's Description

Something I wrote many moons ago, hoping to do a series of graphics to go with it. It is intended to read like a myth or fairytale would.
