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.
