Existence was non-Existence
An infinite stretch of timeless space and spaceless time
Nestled within it lay a point of pure energy
An imperceivably small speck contained all that would ever come to be.
All of the energy that radiates throughout the universes and within us
compressed into a point
smaller than an atom.
Instantaneously, the microscopic point
E x p l o d i n g throughout the Emptiness,
Engulfing the vast void and filling it with space and matter, energy and
Giving Birth to Light

Humanity continuously attempts to remove itself from the Light,
Yet we simultaneously search frantically for enlightenment.
… all in the pursuit of enlightenment.
This frenzied chase has led us to overshadow reverence for luminosity
with rigorous schedules and a desire to conform.
that society is immersed in
relies on nonrenewable, destructive energy.
Dependence on this source of energy
has fueled war and enforced “democracy” without diplomacy.
This blatant disregard for the
of consumption and replenishment
has wreaked havoc on the planet’s delicate ecosystem
extinction and famine.
Instead of looking inside and reflecting on our own radiance
it is much easier to turn on the television and turn off our minds.
Neighborhoods are neglected and town squares deserted
while My-Space is over crowded.
The emotional consequences of such a lifestyle are far reaching.
Pills are prescribed, quick fixes guaranteed (“30 days or your money back!”),
and Dr.Phil dispenses “wisdom” to voyeuristic viewers daily.
Peel off the façade of the projected “utopia”.

tiny yet integrally connected to every particle
in and out of existence.
