Chasing the Light

“And God created light on the first day…”

Clarity that surrounds me
Darkness that surrounds me
So he told him day and night.

What is clarity?
What is darkness?
We must go to the heart.

By the senses everything is true
No doubts
However it is an appearance.

Semblance of reality
Appearance of existence
Is everything an appearance?

Where we live?
Who lives?
Who thinks?

Word games

Is philosophy a path?
Are religions a path?
Is intuition a path?

We chase the light
We don’t want the dark
The dark scares us.

Darkness and fear
Light and joy
Such is the duality.

But the origin is not dual
In the origin everything is contained
But there is no game.
