A Burning Reminder

I just visited the Sun

I came up here and I swallowed the Sun.
It was too much for my body, so it got out, but we weren’t done.
“I left a miniature of me inside you.
It has the same substance as me
and now also as you.
Before you go I have a question to ask.
What’s the difference you sense
with my substance in your heart”?
I silence the sounds of the surroundings,
and I make real contact with my body.
My mind gets stuck on the Sun’s gift,
but I pass by the thought, without being attached to it.
I try to scan myself from head to toe
to realize what changed with the light I borrowed.
My scanner, the Observer which is me without subjectivity,
— that voice that neither “caresses” nor judges the earthly me — ,
says that no change of substance seemed to have happened;
just that my range of perception is being widened.
When did that took place, how do I become a stronger radar?
Was it magic or it was the light of the sun?
Wait. What do you mean ‘no change of substance’?
Same light before and after the sun’s entrance?
The data show that the expansion is running
while I am consciously doing that scanning.
So, not before? Did the Sun add nothing to my vessel?
Was I mocked by the dark’s partner?
No, no, the Sun can’t lie.
Eternity’s entities have nothing to hide.

What remains then? What’s the answer?
Oh, I “see” now; the Sun was always in there.
“What a great messenger you are, you burning life-giver!
You offered me a placebo to make me uncover
the reality that is present in me (since) forever,
the Self to which my personality struggles to surrender.
OK, I’ll go now to let you do your work.
It’s really hot here, I can’t stay long.
But I know now I have your warmth in me,
and I’ll try to keep it alive on earth, the great transformation’s field”.
