The All-Encompassing Center

I left the center for the periphery and beyond.

I had to leave home.

But on the periphery and beyond all I found was the center again.

I now know that I had never left the center.

The journey was the dream of the all-encompassing center.

I’ve always been home all along.

The periphery is the apparent falling-out-of-itself of the center, the circle a homogenous projection of a point.

The point, the dimensionless center, is the total Reality, where everywhen and everywhere is concentrated.

I’m not something in here and in the now: I am the here and I am the now. I am all that there is.

  1. An absolutely beautiful description of the truth that all is one. All paths lead to the center. Where else could they go?

  2. Nicely put! Reminded me of a line from T.S. Eliot, “Little Gidding”:

    “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”

  3. “I’m not something in here and in the now: I am the here and I am the now. I am all that there is.”

    It is clear to me that you speak from a direct experience of the truth. I feel it resonate with me and slip away through my fingers
