somehow



.
I find that somehow, by shifting the focus of attention, 
I become the very thing I look at, 
and experience the kind of consciousness it has; 
.
I become the inner witness of the thing. 
I call this capacity of entering other focal points of consciousness,
.
love; 
.
you may give it any name you like. 
.
Love says "I am everything". 
Wisdom says "I am nothing". 
Between the two, my life flows. 
.
Since at any point of time and space 
I can be both the subject and the object of experience, 
I express it by saying that 
I am both, and neither, and beyond both.
.
