Alkalizing Spirit

Alkalizing Spirit

written by: Scott Thomas Outlar



Pineal gazing
to quiet the mind
and usher consciousness
toward a single point
of higher awareness

beyond the frantic process
of thinking in circles
petting the ego
and arguing with self
until silence eventually
wins center stage

Solitary excursion
into the depths
offers expansion
outside the boundaries
of time and space

The empty void
of dark entropy
when followed along
a narrow path
explodes into light

as the soul dissolves
back into alignment
with source
