illuminating everywhere





Theres something so..
Etherealy unearthly..so
Luminescently
soothing..glow
In the orange, red, yellow
Flickering stillness..
I close the light..and in the dark
I let the light bathe my soul..my spark..
And suddenly the walls dissapear..
A warped sense of ..here
I’m nowhere
..and
I’m everywhere
I’m one.joined and fused
To countless tired souls, confused
hungry...tired and abused..
By others...or not
Rooted to this spot..
Somehow..drawn to the light..
Like drunken moths in the night..
I could be in Auschwitz..or Spain
I don’t know where I am anymore
..and I don’t care..
For you see..when God reveals his hidden light..
He doesn’t take it out to share it with his plight..
He lets us in..opens his space..
to that oh so private place..
Just don’t close your eyes..
Keep staring..
Keep staring...
Until you feel the ground give way..
Until you see the walls disappear..
Until you cease to hear..
The cossacks thundering stampede
The modern world’s dizzying need
And speed
Oh...
You’ll just know
When you’re there...

oh my goodness...

I never knew anyone else had feelings like me...

It's like all of a sudden you're part of a totally different world...

Oh, wow...

But you know, it takes a strong person to want to explore himself like that... not everyone can delve that deeply into his own mind and become one with his deepest fears and realities - while shedding all inhibitions and limitations...

I'm glad to know you can.

Its cool to know im not the only person that sort of uses the chanukah lights as a method of soul searching/escaping... the soothing lights just seem to transport me to another another place..another lifetime...
