The Progress of The Soul: A Poetic Allegory for Spiritual Seekers of All Traditions & None

The Progress of The Soul: A Poetic Allegory for Spiritual Seekers of All Traditions & None

The black zone

The book is full of facts.
Everything is common sense.
Means what it says, says what it means.

The void zone

Actually, none of it was true!
I’ve been tricked!

The white zone

It’s all just metaphorical.
Tag along for a while.
Don’t get sucked in.
This is all purely poetic, so no problem.

The gray zone

It’s definitely NOT facts.
But it doesn’t seem like poetry either.

Something has changed.
Onwards and always
Something has changed inside of me.

And with it, my world has changed.

I don’t quite know where I am…
I can live with that.

Being here.

Being with myself.

Being here with you.

It’s going to be OK.
