Sometimes in the amazing ignorance
I hear things and see things
I never knew I saw and heard before
Sometimes in the ignorance
I feel the meaning
Invincible invisible wisdom,
And I commune with intuitive instinct
With the force that made life be
And since it made life be
It is greater than life
And since it let extinction be
It is greater than extinction.
I commune with feelings more than
For there is nothing else to ask for
That companionship is
And it is superior to any other is.
Sometimes in my amazing ignorance
Others see me only as they care to see
I am to them as they think
According the standard I should not be
And that is the difference between I and them
Because I see them as they are to is
And not the seeming isness of the was.
“This music is all apart of another tomorrow, another kind of language, speaking things of nature, naturalness, the way it should be, speaking things of blackness, about the void, the endless void, the bottomless pit surrounding you, why doesn’t the Earth fall, how can you walk upon it, it’s the music, it’s the music of the Earth, the music of the sun and the stars, the music of yourself, vibrating, yes, you are music too, you are instruments, everyone is supposed to be playing their part, in this vast Arkestry of the cosmos”. Sun Ra (1974)
