Inner Awareness Training, a modern composition

Recommended Posts

Is this any good? Asking for a friend.

 

Quote

 

When I stop looking at the world of things, 
I become aware that I am breathing.
When I make the breathing gentle yet deep,
I become aware of the movement of air.

 

Continuing to quietly watch,
I become aware that my heart is beating.
Remaining poised yet still,
I become aware of the movement of blood.

 

Feeling the pulse from within,
I become aware of oxygen seeping into surrounding tissues.
We learnt of these processes intellectually,
But to sense them first-hand takes practice.

 

Pursuing this mystery even further,
I hear directly the electric humming of nerves,
And taste the energy dense chemicals,
Secreted by endocrine glands.

 

At an extremely subtle level,
There is something called biophotons.
Welcome to a whole new life,
As a luminous being.

Lovely poem -- but not very complete in terms of understanding. Trying to add another verse here -

Stay with that for a bit longer

you are that which knows

both the biophotons

and the luminous being.

They come and go 

you remain.

I did almost add another section about the next level in, of faster-than-light quantum entangled consciousness patterns.. but wanted to stay within a certain scope of perception.

I become aware that I am breathing.

I become aware of the movement of air.

 

Continuing to watch quietly,
I become aware that my heart is beating.
Remaining poised yet still,
I become aware of the movement of blood.

 

Feeling the pulse from within,
I'm aware of oxygen seeping into surrounding tissues.
We learnt of these processes intellectually,
But to sense them first-hand takes practice.

 

Pursuing this mystery further,
I hear the electric hum of nerves,
And taste the energy dense chemicals,
Secreted by endocrine glands.

 

Eventually the five senses intermingle,
Yielding an integrated kinesthetics.
And the photosensitive pineal gland,
Picks up a tapestry woven in the waters below.

 

At an extremely subtle level,
Cells emit luminous patterns of biophotons,
More subtle still, A quantum hologram,
Echoes consciousness throughout the cosmos.

 

Any of these constructs may fade someday,
Yet something still remain.
The deepest mystery of where is the "I"
That becomes aware of any of it?

So sensitive and deep, my heart is stirred with wonder and awe.
