A simple seeker of enlightenment was, or almost believed she was
Unprepared for the lesson that Spirit seemed intent on her learning;
That the pillars of form, consciousness, and force that provided
The basic structure, or the built environment, of The Tree of Life
Did not exist as anything more or less than mental concepts
To express the lived world of continuous experience and response,
That necessarily causes an expansion of consciousness, or awareness,
As a result of this evolutionary process.
But, she protested, consciousness rises.
Everything rises as it expands. Density of matter, or mind, moves up
As it reaches out.
It isn’t fair.
What isn’t fair.
I’ve spent countless hours learning to relate to specific centers
Of energy on the separate pillars of form, consciousness, and force.
And their specific interactions with other energies.
There are no other energies.
