Invisibility Cloak

A question loomed over my head last night, while I tossed in my bed – can I transfer my consciousness into another being or thing, so when this organic form can no longer withstand my rambunctiousness, another takes over, in continuum?

This morning I woke up wondering whether I am the best me.

Perhaps how you see me is my better portrait, of what I am to this world; not to myself, not from my eyes, but yours.

What am I, then, if not a transient reflection of you, and you of me?

Why, then, do I desire a stagnant, unnatural self-preservation?

Only invisible things are immortal.

Chapter I – Trinity

In the Beginning, Vishnu and Shiva ruled; matter and antimatter, positive and negative.  To avoid nonexistence, Vishnu transformed, becoming the Divine Mother, Párvati.  She accepted Shiva’s consortium – Lingum – and the universe unfolded.  From this cosmic dance bloomed the Divine Lotus.  Brahma, the universal creator, sat atop the flower; it corded to Vishnu’s naval.
