I feel I must define
This enlightened state of mind
Of which I call ascension
It is not "ascending"
Above any
Thing
Or any
One
But seeing the truth
And being with peace as one
Knowing and seeing and feeling
This truth
Without hesitation
Or demand of "proof"
Just… peace
With this knowledge
Understanding
With this sight
And content
With this feeling
"Ascension"
Is not enlightenment
But the process
Of being enlightened
Because true enlightenment
Is far beyond ascending
And, perhaps, far beyond reach itself.
