be real in the moment

be real in the moment
by jennifer kiley

be real in the moment

being real is ultimatley paramount.
life exists in one moment.
as time holds it in its’ arms.

participating in that continuous instant,
is how we learn, experience and grow.
only if we listen, act and become aware.

in that flash we may absorb
the underlying wisdom of life
that is hidden within her secret places.

if we concentrate and let go, we may
find in the contradiction that our
spirit may glimpse the infinite truth.

  1. Gorgeous poem, Jennifer. “if we concentrate and let go, we may
    find in the contradiction that our spirit may glimpse the infinite truth.” Only a glimpse is possible; even then, Nietzsche couldn’t cope with it.

    • if not done with caution, it can blow your brains right out the top of your head. (figuratively speaking). my chakras opened up with the great countdown when it happened. i think the energy was moving too quickly and the chakras were opening to fast. did i mention i had been smoking weed at the time. not recommended under these circumstances. never meditated when stoned ever again. i’ve had moments at other times but so briefly and while meditating. it’s not something that one can hold onto or catch. you try to do that and it’s gone. it’s when you’re not looking and you’ve let go. it’s like seeing invisible objects out of the corner of your eye. they’re there but you can’t directly see them or they will vanish “into thin air.” i never quite understood that phrase: “into thin air.” as opposed to what? so did nietzsche continue on into his madness from the glimpse? i’ve got a book recently that he wrote: “beyond good and evil.” i thought some day i would try to tackle it.

      you really like my poetry. that means more to me then you know. jen xox

      thank you, niamh.
