I Wonder If
I wonder if spirit is the word invented
to umbrella our human probing
into the mysteries of life itself:
first life/creation - the very essence of living -
surely in itself an act of constant creating.
How bold to state that an Idea IS a Fact!
But, then, how logical is it
to insist that 'Fact is only Idea' -
as favoured in lofty terms
not so esoteric as you might think?
It seems possible to consider that
Everything is Idea and Fact is non-existent.
Not a concept for the faint-hearted.
Which circles back to the Idea of 'spirit'
which may well be a Fact
on its peculiar plane
which we cannot say doesn't exist
just because we don't know it.
Is all 'proof' necessarily 'physical'?
So – does it even matter
whether 'spirit' is Fact or Idea?
We humans are imaginative -
creating any form of 'original life'
that we choose to, and we do.
Who is to say what Idea is the best Idea
Claiming the 'ideal'?
Who defines fact or fiction in personal faith?
In Religion -
where 'proof' is a slippery slope
for careful footsteps
and the scope of imagination?
The mind boggles.
Maybe that's what we truly are – just BRAIN -
And all else is illusion.
An interesting thought -
Scary but interesting.
One thing for sure:
I do not scoff at anything
Just because I'm not capable of comprehending it.
Or simply - refusing to.
