Knowing

Clarity obscured,

Hope turned to faith.

 

Illusions confirmed,

Truth in perceived reality shaken.

 

How can anything be real,

Now that I know.

 

The knowing cannot be deleted,

Like it or not.

 

The duality is gone.

This step forward prohibits two back.

 

I think it is a positive thing,

At least it is supposed to be.

 

But the old saying,

“Ignorance is bliss” sometimes sounds easier.

 

Not as in a way of reality or life,

But as an easier and simpler path.

 

Is the ignorant way really easier or simpler?

Or is that the illusion we are trying to overcome?

 

The illusion fosters a belief in a way that cannot continue to exist,

It is mindless and controlling.

 

The loss of illusion permits mindfulness

And an examination of emotions and thoughts.

 

Often times my mind and soul tire of the

Reasoning and examining and effort it takes to just be in this world.

 

But in the long run, and on a daily basis, I realize that

Mindfulness and deliberation are the only true way.

 

The only way that will take me

To the future and beyond.

 

A path of fulfillment and deliverance

From a world of falsehoods and delusion.

  1. Sentience is a tough sentence sometimes. But in the long run, so much less dangerous than being lulled into compliant ignorance! Your poetic way of stating it lulls me in a wholly different and welcome way.

  2. I’ve so been there….asking a question and when the answer was different than I wanted it to be, wishing I could regain my ignorance. But yeah….I’d always rather know than not. No pretty lies please. Do you know the poem “The Invitation” by Oriah Mountain Dreamer? It describes my perfect man…..

  3. much love soul sister ….sometimes knowing nothing is not painful but reality hurts the most. Sometimes I’d rather live in oblivion and fantasize or live in illusions dreams brings creativity and happiness. I wish to dream forever and live in ignorance all my life but I found out my intuition is ranked the highest of it’s potential premonitions and warnings guards my life. When I fall in love with him at that moment I feel it’s the very right thing to do? Why is it so? Are we connected in some way I have a feeling please tell me if I’m wrong. But I have to live at the moment and make my dreams come true and let God devise a plan for me in the end. I’m trapped in a maze of life’s intricate labyrinth though I want to get out but I hold on to the truth and norms of reality. Patience is my virtue by being a prude makes my life a lonely road to travel.I want to be happy and end the abuse I suffer all my life the reason that I become a highly intuitive person .
