Working It All Out; Phase 8: Poem of Things

Science will never come close
to the essence of things because
its domain is in the material.

The material will never guide
you to the essence of things
because it’s just a reflection.

A reflection will never lead
you to the essence of things
because it’s not really real.

Something not real will never
get you to the essence
of things because it’s just nothing.

Nothing will never bring
you to the essence of things
but something certainly will.

I would certainly agree with poem about science and the material.But the material sometimes fades the spiritual out don't you think?

Hi Guy, I'm not sure if I agree with that. I think we fade away our own spiritual, and then try to replace it with the material. Which never works of course. At least that's what I think I used to do.
