Ripples in Consciousness



Be conscious of your actions.

Be aware of the results of your actions.

What did you trigger?


What energy do you exude?

Darkness or light?

What does light mean? Illuminescence? Not.



Are you aware?

Be aware of your self.

Beware of yourself.


Are you your self?

Or is your self you?

Who has control?

Consciousness? or the Self?



Selfish is of the self.

Selfless is divided from oneself.

How do you define the divide?

Do you?


RipplesРbe conscious of the ripples. Beware of the ripples.

Ripples become waves.

Waves become tsunamis.




I was inspired to write this shortly after the central lecture in class today. Consciousness and the self– a discussion of being aware. And today the lecture seemed acutely relevant to some personal things in my life, so I wanted to express the abstract of it in a poem.
