Exploration...

Another flashback here...

This short piece was written in August of 2011, shortly after my first-ever two ayahuasca ceremonies.

(The other piece written at that time, a masterpiece unto its own rather wonderfully capturing the essence of the experience, I published here a couple years ago: “Vine Of The Soul”)...

Exploration

The gateway to a world of magic opens
to those with the courage to explore
the depths of their own soul -
The mysteries of unknown dimensions revealed
to those with the strength to dive into
realms interwoven through the fabric of reality...

To those who seek truth,
a new plane awaits,
on which nothing is concealed but that
one is not ready to know -
yet knowledge evading the mind,
is seen through the eyes of the soul -
felt through true presence
in merging with the field from which all arises -
seen & unseen...

For those who dare to venture
into the unknown,
the mysteries to the mind are met with clarity -
pushing beyond the limits of our awareness,
all within them transforms...

The quest holds many treasures
for those abandoning the beaten path -
its twists & turns through
the darkest of our psyche
testing our spirit;
though it is in oneself, the treasure he finds...

The ecstasy of discovery,
gifted to the humble -
knowing we know nothing,
yet bestowed with limitless curiosity -
there is nothing that cannot be shown
once the path is stepped on...

The poem is like a key to a maze with plenty mysteries hidden within it is foreboding and it's written in simple English which clearly elaborates your theme of the poem I see a lot of ironic lines too like the line in the last stanza that says knowing we know nothing it's paradoxical and definitely beautiful, leaves the ordinary mind in awe.

I once wrote a stuff like this on my blog last week

Amazing one @rok-sivante it's beautifully written.

Definitely Rok I saw the piece before this one and I was stupefied this one completely took me off my comfort zone, it explores externality beyond reasoning and I definitely love it, I'll be glad if I could do a piece like this with you

Sir! You really did a nice job with the spoken words.

Nothing can be revealed to you if you are not humble to ask.
The knowledge of the universe is so limitless...even Isaac Newton, Rutherford etc do not all, but the knowledge we gather now is for the utility of next scientists unborn!

Lol...funny emoji, thanks for your time bro

All doors can be wide open, but sometimes the body is stiff to move, so the road is sometimes closed to those who walk in place, But we believe that all roads will be wide open for those who try to fly. But can I fly without wings ?, maybe it can, at least you have to try to create wings even though it's not 100 percent ready. Believe in what makes you succeed, sometimes it is very difficult, even to be understood it looks very difficult, but that is effort, all the way is wide open for those who try.


Trying and adventure, things that might be equally draining, but adventure will be more draining for those who explore new places, it depends on the atmosphere, as well as the courage of the audience. Because sometimes we feel a lie when stepping away in a direction without direction, without realizing it, that there is already a final conclusion that is so lucky.

thank you @rok-sivante, sorry if this comment is far from the writing you shared.

The search for truth and the search for identity are indeed very expensive. Many people are actually afraid to look for, because they are comfortable with the situation, or they are scared when they have found what they are looking for, they become disappointed in themselves.

Poetry that inspires readers to dare to find the light of truth, @rok-sivante

Anyway, I also like writing poetry.

Curious about why your ayahuasca experiences ended with two ceremonies. Did you feel like you achieved all you desired at that point? Do you feel called to continue journeying and working in this way? I'm remembering your one ayahuasca story bringing you to your partner in life, and it being a pivotal moment in your story.

It was merely a two-night weekend. Did another 3 nights three years later in Bali. And 3 nights recently. Foresee probably hundreds of journeys over the course of this lifetime. 😇

In all honesty, I can’t completely recall my intention for those first two, or what specifically was “achieved.” Although, it was most definitely satisfactory. The main two points that stuck out in my memory about those, were the phrase, “ayahuasca is like entering a magical world from which there is no return,” (and you wouldn’t want to return even if you could), and the awareness that everyone in my life was part of a network of angels.

Yeah, that take of the Bali experience was most definitely one of the key pivotal points in my life. This last round was also quite the breakthrough experience. 💖

Yeah, brother, I'm with you in appreciating this medicine. Happy to hear you're still working with it. "Bom trabalho," as we say. Wishing you good journeys.

Wisdom is the finest gift of the God, this is the only thing which differs the humans from animals. Wisdom compels the human mind to explore the world to reveal the truth. These lines are so deep,

For those who dare to venture
into the unknown,
the mysteries to the mind are met with clarity -
pushing beyond the limits of our awareness,
all within them transforms...

I loved this poem of yours and looking really forward to read more <3

On the contrary, animals may possess different types of wisdom most humans have long forgot... ;-)

Yes, I think you are right we the humans are unable to understand the level of wisdom the animals possess. Agreed :)

The last paragraph reminds me of the the philosophical approach I was taught towards learning. A little humility and an open mind...

Thanks to you I've been exposed to a better understanding of astrology

Nice poem about the depths of the mystical journey within when drinking Aya. That reminds me how much I miss the brew and that I need another ceremony before Anarchapulco 2019.
