There is an immensity in me

It is huge, wide, deep and full

It is so grand, awesome

That when it seizes me

My spine shakes and trembles.


It is a wonder, it is full of bliss, has

         endless beauty

It lights the way.

It makes me rich, silly with joy

Spontaneous, giddy

The immensity in me.


It was there at my birth

There when I started school,

It was there on the ball fields of my youth

Winning or losing at some game

There in classrooms, learning catechisms, even in conflicts

In the warmest summers and rain-filled winters,

In the grace of springs and the golden light of falls

There even in my darkest desperate moments,

         filled with shame and doubt.

That immensity in me

Would not fail me,

Would not release me,

Held tight its grip.


The immensity is the gift of poesy, gift of vision

Gift of caring and compassion

It knows no beginning,

Will have no end.


There is immensity in you

It is an overwhelming fountain

         gushing joy

That cleanses and transforms

And connects to the Holy People,

         the Great Ones

Whether you are Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, Christian or

         of a religion so close and compelling it needs no

         books or titles.

This immensity was with you when you were born.

It cannot be other

No matter how you were born, where you were born,

          to whom or why

The immensity is you.


Ah, we have great gaps in the world, filled with hatreds

         and misunderstandings,  terrible woundings, horrible slaughters.

But the immensity is not shaken, does not shrink away

It claims us, drives us back into to life

To try again.


There is immensity in me –

It is greater and deeper and more wonderful

Than I can say.

That immensity in you is the same

Though different of race, speech, nation, sex, age, color, character, talent


Not to the immensity in me

Not to the immensity in you

Not to the immensity.

Oh, the immensity!

The kind of revelation that brings so much more clarity to all that follows. I can still feel it, too, and it has nothing to do with mundane ego, it is the discovery of truth through the eyes of our conditioned minds, suppressed from the understanding just how spectacular our complexity and our potential is, the universe in form of humans.

Thanks, Paul! Really sweet, neat and beautiful.

So seldomly are  such profound and artful presentations  of such very real personalities and personifications  of the human potential captured  in mind yet alone put to prose and poetry .

When I read this it brings to mind  the illustration of the Temple of Man , that inner temple of his character that has been similarly illustrated for all of mankind so many Milena ago in the Temple at Lu-xor . This makes it clear to me that these qualities and potentials have existed in us for time out of mind..

Thank you so much for this .

A beautiful message communicated in wonderful images and poetic ways. I can even feel the intensity of it from afar at the other end of the screen. Beautiful indeed!
