Élan Vital

Suzanne M. Kelly

In my search for the truth, I have walked to the end of many a precipice and looked out over the valley of belief that lay below. Each time if I looked long enough, I found among the bramble a flower of truth, beauty and goodness. In every valley of belief that I crossed, I took with me a seed of its enlightenment, and hopefully left the weeds of superstition, ignorance and ritual behind. Over many years those seeds of truth have grown into a personal understanding of mind, matter, energy and spirituality. I've organized them into a modern day Iliad, which has become my story of God and man - and the evolution of man toward God, Élan Vital.

When you meet a master swordsman, show him your sword. When you meet a man who is not a poet, do not show him your poem. -- Rinzai, ninth century Zen master

Existence follows natural laws
it continues expanding in spite of the flaws

For all exist in time and space
but our times of existence are not held in place

As Time can't be lost and space can't be found,
to each dimension nothing is bound

For everything is nothing and nothing's repressed
where all are contained and all manifest
