some time later that multiplicity of light
spoke and broke the eternal silence
moving as the mover and awakening as the
awakened stirred and then creating
making the True Self and all that appears
appeared at a word and with the appearance
of age but aged as if one age were ages
nothing left unaffected all arising naturally
time being just the word it is and every word
just an expression of the infinite
facets of the same light or always moving
toward it recognizing the face within it
as our own true face having the power
all along to speak and breathe the word of life
and nothing at all was ever
undone unspoken unborn
