Behold: A Poem by Keith Brooks

Behold is both the commandment and the salvation

We are the witness and the protagonist of divine alchemy.

We are the untethered wildcard whose essence is inextricably a part of the alchemical expansion of Life.

We are a creative extension of that which creates.

We are, as is all that is, a unique living expression of source.

Behold is both the commandment and the salvation.

If only I had eyes to see, I would bask blissfully in awe of all that is before me. The mundane would be
transformed into the majestic. The world becomes a magical botanical garden when the ego is no
longer the narrator.

If only I had ears to hear, I could enjoy the songs of butterflies and listen to a flower’s serenade as it
courts the bumble bee. Life becomes a beautifully orchestrated symphony when the ego is no longer
the conductor.

If only I had a heart to feel, I could look beyond our differences and reunite with Love. I would greet
each moment with a smile that knows no fear. We can find Joy in every moment when the ego is no
longer the judge.

Behold is both the commandment and the salvation.

Behold says the ego. I am the narrator, the conductor and the judge… until death do us part. Just relax.
I shall interpret life for you. I shall keep you well versed in what is right and wrong, good and bad. Just
relax. I will let you know when you are the best or the worst. I will run the control center through which
you scrutinize life. I will be your GPS.

Behold is both the commandment and the salvation.

Are you a part of the whole or, apart from the whole?

Are you the slave or the master?

Are you the victim or the alchemist?

Behold as the ego keeps the seeker seeking, continuously encumbered by mental folly.

Behold is both the commandment and the salvation.

Behold as the witness and the protagonist dance a dance that can only be choreographed in a moment
of being…Behold.

Behold as one melts into a realm where there is no separation, where oneness is the only filter and Love
is the only catalyst…Behold.

Behold as one dissolves into a place where the ego is no longer utilized. For, you are no longer apart
from or a part of…. You realize that you are a conscious expression of that which is all that is. You
simply become consciousness…Behold.

Behold as one becomes conscious of our alchemical contribution to that which eternally oscillates from
the infinite beginning to the ever expanding edge of creativity.

Behold is both the commandment and the salvation.

Behold…
