When I see from eye, all is an illusion and I appear to be in the illusion, part of the illusion,
as some say,
projecting the illusion,
one with the illusion (one with everything, one with all…)
When I see from I,
the illusion doesn’t disappear,
is not changed,
seen as perfection,
and so on…
the illusion is included, comprehended,…
as it is, no more no less,
no more power, no less power,
just as it is…
powerless over me…
then, its value is put in its proper place…
This is real alchemy…
to see that I don’t have to turn base metals into gold,
to see that base metals have no more power than gold,
in fact, that base metals have equal power to gold: NONE!
I don’t have to turn nothing into nothing… just to TURN,
turn from what is seen from the eye to I.
Isn’t it just glorious?
