Well every once-in-a-while a writer is compelled to take some poetic license - or is it mythopoetick license?
Hmmm...poetry for a new story of humanity's future?
How about "forget your old future" as I wrote in a previous blog inspired by my friend Michael Gaio?
Below, I have written a piece of "mythopoetic prose."
I am particularly inspired to try out new word and idea forms with poetry from the writings of my "Elfish" friend named Delvin. I blogged about Delvin a while back.
During a conference presentation I found myself observing to be what I would describe as a new way of thought for our species.
As I listened to the presentation, I found the phrase best described as a 'contemplative permaculture' very interesting which is to take the discipline of permaculture and apply it in the realm of thought..
I was inspired a group of geniuses who spoke at the conference who are building an amazing developments in the suburban areas of Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. Their evolutionary company is called Aperion.
What I found particularly delightful is that these home builders showed in their presentation that they are inspired by quantum physics and a discipline called "complexity theory."
Reflecting on the days experiences all delivered me to a realm of pure deep thought.
In the evening after the conference, I wrote an email to a friend with whom I like to explore different word formations.
In that email I wrote this word combination as the "poem."

“You arise, are born, and manifest as an expression of identity, unaware of that which lies within you. As a single perceiver, you lose contact with the ocean of consciousness that floods your entire existence. Your only contact with the creation is through the limited fields of perception of the senses, and the sensations they generate only serve to produce an attachment that binds you to the very idea of perception itself.
Enormous spiritual resources of consciousness, energy, and life force are expended in the process of creating this envelope of experience. This dynamic produces an energy that we would commonly call desire, which gives rise to the endless wheel of birth, life, decay, and death.
The guru is an integral part of the ocean of consciousness that is the origin and cause of all things, an eternal spirit that arises at the inception of the creation. It is the guru that liberates you from the thrall of the senses, redirecting your attention to the ocean of consciousness which is your very nature. The guru is the grace-bestowing power of God, the incarnation of mercy, the essence of awakening.
