April 7 The Absolute consciousness

Excerpts of show notes from the JUST BE IT blog talk radio on consciousness unlimited blog talk radio

This show is like a spiral motion a circling around the age old questions, what is that Greater Self, what is the God inside of me and how can I connect to it?

And here is a poem of Rainer Maria Rilke speaking just about that, and it touches on, how I feel in my 30 year of quest exploring the many ways of humans  towards God, the Ultimate reality, the Brahman, the Absolute consciousness. Here is the poem, which I translated for you.

Rainer Maria Rilke:

I live my Life in growing circles

which cover things

perhaps the last one I will not be able to complete

But I will try him

I circle around God, the ancient tower

And I circle around it for centuries long

And I still do not know: am I falcon, a storm or a great song?

This is from the “Book of hours” published in 1905.

One of his early works, where he writes like a monk about his relationship to God.

Rainer Maria Rilke is considered one of the most significant poets in the German language. He wrote in both verse and a lyrical prose. He has developed a language about the inner realm, of what he called the room of the heart.  In the English language, he is widely known for the  “Letters to a Young poet” from which I quoted in our  episode on Feb 25.
