The Universe Inside

From my heart, to my dear Earth Tribe <3

 

The Universe Inside

When I peer into my own eyes I see a galactic explosion

Two galaxies collide

A cosmic devastation

Simultaneously an infinite creation

 

I see curiosity

at a perceiver, perceiving me

 

The Universe expressed

As a perspective overdressed

In materials that stress

That I’m something less

 

But my eyes say more

STORE the universe inside

SEE the glimpse of one OUT

 

The universe expressed as a SKIN

Tells the story of what’s WITHIN

HEARS the story of what’s OUT

Makes sense of it, and turns it to doubt

 

I CHOOSE TO BELIEVE

THAT WHAT I PERCEIVE

IS MY RESPONSIBILITY

TO SHARE

 

Because there are infinite ways to witness the Universe

and infinite ways to express it

 

The Creator has created infinite views of ONE

infinite existence

 

We are not only here to witness

But to live it

 

The Creator has created infinite ways to perceive ItSelf

 

There is no right or wrong

Only story and perspective.

Write yours.

 

When I look into my eyes I see infinity.

That’s the story I seek to share.

What’s yours?

 

When I look into my eyes I see

a soul searching for the meaning

of humanity.

What are we?

HOW DO I DEFINE WHAT I CAN’T DEFINE

with the things I see around me?

 

I journey internally

through the Universe inside me

and create my own meaning

 

That you can’t define a race

That’s not even awake

Enough to know they’re one race

 

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF HUMANITY

WHO ARE WE

HOW DO I DEFINE WHAT I CAN’T DEFINE

WITH THE THINGS I SEE AROUND ME?

 

I journey internally

through the Universe inside me

and create my own meaning

 

That we are light

and light is all I see

That we are illuminating and BLINDING

Brilliant as a THOUSAND SUNS

that dim out the stars SURROUNDING

I look into my own eyes

and I no longer WORRY

 

I trust, I am home

I look within so I can know

I look within so I can show

 

My observers a projection

an expression of my reflection

the truth I’ve gained

from my inward exploration

Communicate to an outward

Experience perceived as an

Internal Dialogue and

transformed into a story

dissected by the mind

of another set of colliding

galactic eyes

 

How do I show you,

the light I see within mine?

 

The light I see within you?

 

How do I SHOW you

that you’re light?

Dancing across the plane of creation

Shimmering against the surface of the ocean and

HOW DO I SHOW YOU

That you’re brighter than the Sun

Blazing up the bluest of skies

and blinding my naked eyes

that just want you to realize

and see…. me.

 

I see you. I see you. I SEE YOU I SEE YOU

and it’s beautiful, magical, mystical, whimsical

to witness your light

dance across the night

 

The stars know that you’re far more

than you give yourself credit for

they whisper as they glimmer amongst each other

 

They know they’re light

they know it so surely

that’s the only way we can perceive them

 

Their job as a mirror, is done.

My job as a mirror has just begun.

And it won’t stop until every last soul

expands into the vibrancy of their being

explodes into a star

 

HOW DO I SHOW YOU

THAT YOU ARE A STAR

LIGHTING UP THE DARKEST NIGHT

Aligning into shapes and patterns

that guide the movements of the seekers and our ancestors

 

HOW DO I SHOW YOU THAT YOU’RE A STAR

DANCING ACROSS THE SKY

AND FILLING THE WORLD WITH WONDER

AS TO WHY

WE FLOAT THROUGH SPACE AND WHO AM I

TO SHOW THE WORLD ITS LIGHT

Who am I to say it shines?

 

Who am I to deny the power of this light

When I’ve witnessed firsthand just how much light

it takes to drive away the darkness?

 

Who am I to drive out darkness?

Well I’ve witnessed firsthand just how much light

it takes to create YOU.

 

I see you. DO YOU SEE ME?

I see this moment, this now, this here, this light

we’re cultivating NOW this collective experience

cause as you listen you hear me, you see me, you FEEL ME

THIS IS OUR LIGHT AND OUR SHINE

OUR CREATION OF DIVINE

UNION WITH THE LIGHT AND LIFE

 

BECAUSE WE ALLOW FOR THE PRESENCE OF MIND

When another light says CAN I SHOW YOU

MY LIGHT

SO THAT YOU CAN SEE YOUR OWN

SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE WORLD’S???

 

And as we see the world’s the world wakes up

as the lights inflate

we see the one race

let go of blame

And unite in the knowing

we all feel the same

and we’re all one flame.
