The Weight of the Soul

is not very much. Perhaps 21 grams.

Yet, it weighs heavily upon many people.

Energy that we hold within that wants –

Release? To join other souls? An end?

Feeling the connection momentarily – joy; then sorrow.

The Dialectic

Forward driven by the conflict between opposites.

Imperfection gives rise to an opposition which

being imperfect itself  gives rise to another.

Sin and salvation. Earth, heaven; church, state.

Thesis and antithesis without synthesis. Finite. Infinite.
