Within the early hours, the sprinkling of moment between stardust and sunbeam, lies the threshold of the Infinite. She pulls back the veil of illusion hanging before my eyes and reveals the Real. A quiet lies waiting, opening and receiving, renewing. Yet still I feel a hunger of mind and the urge to feed my thoughts rather than nourish my soul. This quiet time without distraction of the senses can be bliss or it can be growth.
Awareness peeks around the corner, Her cat eyes half-closed as She pads softly upon the tender field strewn with dandelion puffs waiting for the tiniest of winds to lift them away. She pauses and is perfection of stillness, Her wisdom a well of light with direct access to the core, the center, where molten gold swirls and pulsates.

Without substance, my mind is a source of energy waiting to be tapped, explored like a Journey to the Center of the Earth-Beyond, we are so much more than bone and blood and tissue, more than electrical impulse or vibration, yes, even more than the restrictive concepts that we create to try and make sense of the world in which we live that is really only a product of our imagination anyway!
And in the moment between then and future, I dwell in the now and I am One with Her, we are expansion rather than seeing it. We are all a single incredible vista of awareness that pulsates throughout all that is...
