That Light

That Light
by Azly Rahman

therein in us lies the light
that has transformed the self
and mutate the ego
into differing evolutionary stages
     of consciousness
therein lies, as Man was conceived from spirit and flesh
at Dawn and at the dawning of the historical Man,
the eternal light that alters the entire self
and elopes
and hides
and appears
and disappears
     for the self within,
therein lies at the beginning of creation,
the Man that drinketh from the fountain of Creativity
so that Man may become Creator
as he journeys
into the afternoon,
the late afternoon,
the daybreak, and next
the pitch blackness of the Day,
     only to be reborn and the cycle continues...

Only if man knows
of the light within
that brings him to greater heights
into the layers of the Universe
of the self
     -- larger than the universe outside
     -- until the universes and him becomes one.

But the light too has evolved and rebelled
      - unaware that the self it inhabits
is a well guarded self
wherein the Man
      - the Enlightened One -
sits on a throne
guiding his destiny and
charting his metaphysical history.

Ahhh how nice words like these flow
          -- those only the self knows
For is it not said that
for the known
there is a knower
For the living there is that that liveth within
For the seeing there is one that seeth
For the one that speaks there are verse spoken into .
     And so on and so forth
For -- there is no past nor future
All that ever existed is an ever-changing present ...
