Poetry: The eye of the beholder is "I"

This poem is a bit of a play on words.

It tries to stop us from thinking, "we are who we are", so that we might then become who, "we currently am not", who just might be the real, "I who I really am".

The poetry here takes some contemplating upon. You might find it a bit strangely mystical at first. All good mystical poetry is like that. You must lose yourself within it in order to find yourself within it too.

The all seeing eye is blind without our own eye. Who am I in I?

Thoughts all come and go,
but who is the "I" that chooses,
to follow the thoughts, or not?
Is it the real "I", or not, or not?

Who are you, and who am I?

Should I make my own decisions or listen and follow your advice?

If I do this, why am I me anyway, if I am really you in default?

So I questioned my higher self, who replied like this to me then.

"The fullness of emptiness empties into a new emptiness when you empty yourself of yourself. This is the only way to receive newness of self.

You grow from new input.

This is where I can help you, but the choice to integrate this newness into yourself as a part of yourself is always up to you. Just the same though, the newness remains part of the oneness of your soul, whether you accept this or not.

Oneness grows from oneness when oneness knows itself through you."

"I don't want other people to decide who I am. I want to decide that for myself."

The above quote is from the English actress, Emma Watson.

The only way to be you is to be the you in you of you!

I am what I am, or I am not what I'm not

"I am what I am, and that's all that I am."

This is a quote from, "Popeye", that old time comic-book, and cartoon character.

What am I if I am not what I am?

I am what I am, am I not, am I not?
What am I not if I am not what I am?
Are all things all one in the one as one,
so am I not what I am not, or not not not?

If I am not what I am, am I not what I'm not?
I am actually then what I am not yet not not.
I am what I am, yet I am not not yet who I am.
What am I not if I am not what I am still not?

Are all things all one in the one not begun,
so therefore am I not what I am not, or not?
If I am not who I am, am I not really yet begun?
and so I am actually what I am not yet not not.

When I become what I am not, I am not who I am not,
so then I am not what I am, if I'm not what I'm not not.
"I am what I am, and that's all that I ever am am."
I am not what I am, & that's all that I am not not not not.

Who am I but I in I?

Senryu: The I who is I

"Who am I?," I asked.
Nobody replied, but me.
I had found myself!

"I am in you and you in me, mutual in divine love."

This quote is from that great English mystical poet, William Blake (1757 to 1827).

Conflicts about who you really are can only ever be resolved by finding the love in you that is you.

Poetry: Conflicts can only be resolved from Love

All conflict lives in an absence of real love. Love is just love.
There is no conflict in love. Conflict lives in love's absence.
What is a conflict except being a difference between views.
Love always sees all things in the same way, renewed anew.
Perfection always does that, if I only knew it too to be true.

Conflict is not a part of consciousness, it's all unconscious.
Our minds take over from our hearts to fight against our fear.
If all fear could be immediately all removed from our inside,
our outer demeanour would never be in conflict, or misguide.
Our attitude depends on whether we think from fear, or love.

The truth can never conflict with itself, or with its distribution.
When we speak from our own truth, the conflict is not owned.
Any conflict arises from the fear of you not being your real self.
Real lasting peace is the absence of all of conflict's ill un-health.
Returning to perfect love is the perfect way to conflict resolution.

Yes, trying to leave the mind busy trying to figure it out, whilst we soar past it to the real meaning that we feel in the heart was my intent here.
