Beyond Form First Poem In Book

 
Before the beginning of time,
I AM.
Before the manifestation of form,
I AM.
Before the differentiation of opposites,
I AM.
Before the incarnation on this physical plane,
I AM.

I know neither death nor life,
nor form nor matter -
I AM – not the body.
I AM – not the mind.
I AM – not the emotions.

I AM in the Stillness –
in the still small voice you will find Me.
I AM in the calm between the storm,
I AM that which is beneath the ground of being.
I AM that which is beyond the sight of mortals -
Beyond the physical sense of body that
fades and dies.
I AM not in the corpse that lies in the coffin.

I AM beyond the beauty of mountain heights.
I AM beyond the beauty of poppy fields
blooming red against the cloudless blue sky.
I AM beyond the ocean waves and tides,
Beyond the ethereal foam the waves wash ashore.
Beyond the mountain’s fog -
Beyond the mingling of corporeal bodies
in the temporary ecstasy of physicality.

I AM beyond the creations of mind –
Beyond thoughts -
Beyond fear, anticipation, worry-
Beyond sadness, gloom, despair.

 I AM that which fills the void
of all space –
I AM in between the molecules of matter.
I AM beyond the spectrum of
observable colors.

I AM closer to you than breathing,
I AM closer to you than the
blood coursing through your veins –
closer than the beating of your heart.
I AM in the quiet stillness of the
breath – halted;
in this moment-less Peace – I AM.

Hold not yourself in condemnation or criticism –
for these are no things.
Hold no being in the illusion of sin or evil,
for they are without substance or reality.

Forgive 70 x 70 and then more,
in each new breath – Forgive.
Forgive yourself –
Forgive your parents –
Forgive your children –
Forgive your brothers and sisters –
Forgive your friends –
Forgive your enemies.
Forgive the living and the dead-
Forgive those who pass from sight –
for they will know and receive this loving
absolution –
and they will be free.

Forgive yourself for feeling that
you have to forgive –
for you are as I created you –
My loving Son
in whom I AM well pleased.

You are formless, limitless –
boundless Light,
dancing to the timelessness of joy -
a luminescent cloud of infinite lightness,
floating on the transparency of
eternal bliss.
