Time behind the veil
reveals what needs to be seen;
the best, or the worst…
foundation of consciousness,
the building blocks of one’s soul.
Read a little story about someone’s near-death experience. You know, the whole story where someone goes medically dead for a few minutes and then comes back without a hitch. I don’t mind these stories much. I seem to remember my grandfather died for a few minutes once, but he didn’t have a story to bring back. If he did he didn’t share it. Some people say it’s a way to see heaven (or hell). Some say it’s a way to see our past or future lives.
I say it’s just what we need to see. Some people don’t need to see anything. Some people need the hope of heaven or the pant-shit image of hell. Some people need to see where they’ve been or where they’re going. Some people don’t need to know any of it. Your mind is a magnificent thing, and it will show you whatever you need to see to take that next breath. I think some people see what they need to see instead of what they want to see, and so they don’t come back. They succumb to the image of what they fear, what they refuse to accept, and they let go. I think even some see what they want and need to see, and it encourages them to let go for their own sake, or the sake of others.
Just a little thought that such experiences. Let me know what you think of the poem.
