Corporeal

If I tear down this Temple

will it set me free?

If these walls of flesh and bone

were removed

would there still be space

between me

and you

and the All One?

 

This physical beingness

so fraught with pain and pleasure

are you but a distraction

cleverly placed

smoke and mirrors to cloud my eyes?

Or are you the gift

of a lifetime

a birthright to be claimed

An expression of this beautiful plane

to which I am bound?

 

Pain is only

electrical impulses

Synapses firing

in an ethereal communique

Neurotransmitters carrying a message

translated through the body.

 

Pleasure, though

coaxed from the more tender points of interface

a cascade of chemicals and activated nerves.

 

Does this make it an illusion?

As real as the electricity that flows

through our material world?

If I turn away

will it turn it off?
