My cosmic tour is nearly over
As I conclude
What is in the cosmos
Remains alive in the atoms of my body.
The cosmos is my body and
The sun is my solar self.
If the resources are all lost to us
I will remain in other atoms
In my friend’s consciousness
In other leaves
I will remain immortal
My cells won’t dry
I won’t die
In the intersection of time and space
I will exist
I will exist.
As the yogi years ago in astral uttered
“Discover that the cosmos is your body
The sun is your solar self.”
I comprehend the final frontier
I could define the final frontier
As physics is approximate
Metaphysics is the ultimate answer.
