discern said as they reached out and

grabbed you via the shoulder they

gestured their hand out again this time

two openings regarded in the front of you

with colorations and fractals of blurred

indistinct gadgets reminiscent of your reminiscence

and the alternative become Darkness with a light

mist and low hum emanating out of it

for the display of preference and ardour

and attachment you've got now seen and

experienced their ache and suffering but

your time period is now whole you can step

out of the cycle of beginning and rebirth

you may return to in which you got here from

questions have solutions inside the form of no

questions in any respect wherein no Hearts wreck

because there aren't any Hearts to be broken

there may be no loss because there may be

not anything to connect to

Heaven Nirvana Moksha liberation

or you can continue on in the cycle and

go back to in which you have been you won't understand

any of this occurred there may be no

lesson found out here for you to follow to

your next existence you may not be who you had been

you'll be reborn as a person else

a person destined to all of the equal

capabilities and studies of corporeal



what will or not it's

you stared at each openings as they

stared again at you

the eyes of being and non-being the

Absurd cycle of futile passions and

desires and stories stood subsequent to

the everlasting Bliss of nothingness you

checked out the discern then returned at the


in that moment in the face of

nothingness the pain of everythingness

felt comforting

if it truly is heaven supply me hell

you said

you approached it
