World is illusion poem
by Gunter Hatze
(Ottawa, ON, Canada)
Why do I deny the truth
The truth that I am a shining Star?
Why do I diminish my Light
Which is so bright, even from afar?
How could I have become so small?
Why is it that I cannot see
Forever outwards I search for You
When all the while You are inside of me.
For You and I are One, you see, and
One forever we shall be.
But a veil was placed between us, and
One has turned to “you” and “me”.
Innocence lost, oh how we suffer
in this state of duality.
This tapestry of light and shadow
this illusion we call reality.
In our Hearts we know the truth
We know that we are far from Home.
And so we wander aimlessly
Believing we are all alone.
Until, one day, with a heavy Heart
We stop, we cry, and look within.
And then we see it, oh so clear
Not to love is our only sin.
And in that moment of Revelation
We pierce the veil, the beast is slain.
Beholding You, oh Love Divine
Into One we merge again.tags: world is illusion poems, non duality, non dual poem, divine love, acim, christian non duality
