A Bible for 2015 – A Fragment.

I am a Christian
I am a monotheist
I am a trinitarian
I am a unitarian
I am a theist
I am a deist
I am a monist
I am an atheist
I am an antitheist
I am an agnostic
I am a gnostic
I am a henotheist
I am a xenotheist
I am a Hindu
I am a Muslim
I am a Sikh
I am a Jain
I am a Buddhist
I am a Jew
I am a Zoroastrian
I am this
I am that
I am not this
I am not that
for, not for, against, not against
non-, a- , anti -, pre-, post-
Paramatma
Jivatma
Parabrahmam
Hirnayagarbha
spirit, soul, mind, heart, will, body, navel
All of it
is integrated in me
Being
and Non- Being
not contradictory
I am Beyond
all this and more
I am immanent
I am transcendent
I am not immanent
I am not transcendent
I was born
and I will die
but my i in the Is
was neither born
nor will it
ever die
I am the no thing
in the No Thing
a part, living consciousness
in the Peerless One
the Only One
Without a Second
(Non-) Consciousness
I am sound
and I am silence
the W/word, words, music, speech, languages
I am Zen
and I am Tao
I am the way
that can’t be spoken of
the one who met the Buddha
on the road and killed him
I am alone
but never lonely
I am bliss
I am death
I am life
I integrate
in me
male and female
yin and yang
good and evil
black, yellow, white, red, brown
sadness and happiness
vice and virtue
moral and immoral
pleasure and pain
suffering and its opposite or antidote
sleep and waking
dreams and their counterparts
that come to us
in the daytime
our thoughts, feelings, images, sensations
and emotions
what comes to pass
and what remains or stays
I am the poet
who no longer needs words
but expresses truth
essence
energy
matter
‘chit’
joy
love
compassion
grace
beauty
light
rainbows
grey
reason
irrationality
& darkness
through them
I am the one
who has learned to flow
like the changing sky
and the waves of the sea
like the winds daily
and expanding space
and slowly erode
like time and the stars
mountains and vales
volcanoes and plains
Who am I?
I contain all things
inside me
and
am a seed
in and of all things, Every Thing
One day
if nothing is left of me
I will still be there
in the Eternal Spirit
of God who is Life
in whom is all
as the one
who fits into His side
as the missing piece of the puzzle
who completes His Self
The yin to His Yang
The bride to His Groom
I am the part
of the Mystery
He cannot do without
infinitely.
