The Quintessence of Consciousness

Radiant Receptivity’ (Oil painting on board by Alan Rayner, 2020)

Quintessence

I’ve said it before

And we’ll say it again

.

The quintessence of consciousness

Is the natural inclusion

Of darkness and light

Stillness and flux

Void space and electromagnetism

In receptive-responsive relationship

In all material form

.

Never again to be forgotten

By men

.

Peace be with us
