Eden… the Voyage Within

Eden… the Voyage Within

 (until we bring it out together)

Eden the voyage within ourselves,

The ultimate journey of the universe,

It takes but a meditative moment

To reach the Eternal expanse within.


Come with me, enter its infinite sphere;

It is here, there and everywhere in you

And me, if we but cast our fears aside;

And, believe in hope despite icy mountains

Of alienation, degradation, vengeance,

Anger, pain, fear, sorrow and destruction.


Walk your soul through it all and you will find

The lush green valley, where time stands still;

Flowers sway in the breeze and the river

Enchants with its refrain as children sing,

Songs of praise for all  that remains forever

In everlasting Spring of hope without end,

Eden the voyage within ourselves.


(Inspired by Isaiah 51:3)
