Godchaser

O, seeker of peace,
O, seeker of joy,
Where find you these treasures?
In self, or in riches?

Looking, but not seeing.
Listening, but not hearing.
Life without living, free yet bound,
Decisive yet uncertain.
Bound by illusion, immersed in ones own thoughts;
rushing here and there, yet going nowhere fast.

Be silent; you will hear.
Be still; you will see.
Speaking, yet unheard, sits the sparrow in the oak.
Silent and unseen, rooted flower in the grass.
Why do you hurry? Why do you rush?
Where do you go?

O, Seeker of Light;
In darkness you do search, but in light will you find.
O, Seeker of Life;
In death you do seek, but in life will you find.

You who walk through air,
You who walk through water;
What see you? This and that, and that and this?
Here and there, and there and here?
Many are the faces of One;
this IS that, and that IS this.
All is one, and one is all,
yet divided and apart see you all things.

Shapes and forms, shifting and changing,
but illusions are these: to dust and light will these return.
What truth is there to impermanence,
except impermanent truth?

The truth that changes is not the truth you seek;
the changeless is that which is eternally true.
Seek you permanence in your life of impermanence;
Seek you the rock on which to build,
not the sand by which will shift and change.

Seek you the Eternal, Seek you the Timeless.
Silent is He, yet speaking; words beyond words.
Concealed is He, yet is there; 'tis revealed to the eye that seeks.
He who listens without ears, and sees without eyes;
Seek you God.

oh poetry!! you should consider posting it in the Art Forum. It'll probably get viewed more there if that's important to you at all.
