In the original land of light,
Time does not exist.
For how could it,
When nothing needs to or has a reason to happen.

In the original land of light,
Space does not exist.
For how could it,
When everything extends forever with no boundaries or limits.

In the original land of light,
Change does not exist.
For how could it,
When creation and destruction do not happen.

In the original land of light,
Thought does not exist.
For how could it,
When it lies beyond description and understanding.

In the original land of light,
Emotions do not exist.
For how could it,
When everyone is perfectly still.

In the original land of light,
Communication does not exist.
For how could it,
When everyone already knows everything.

In the original land of light,
Evil does not exist.
For how could it,
When everyone exists as one unity.

In the original land of light,
Darkness does not exist.
For how could it,
When light permeates everything everywhere.

 

And thus the land of light lies,
Beyond all thoughts and emotions,
Beyond all senses and knowing,
Beyond all logic and imagination.

When the land of light was shattered,
Many small separated parts formed,
From everybody everywhere everytime,
there is now somebody somewhere sometime.

Those who do not know time,
Struggle with slowness, delay, and prioritisation,
Their bodies could not keep up with their thoughts,
Their minds want everything done together immediately.

Those who do not know space,
Struggle with movement, differentiation and location,
Their bodies could not move in harmony with their thoughts,
Their minds feel very small, constrained and confined.

Those who do not know change,
Struggle with the unending creation and destruction of reality,
Their bodies struggle with making adjustments,
Their minds cling to the changeless permanence they know so well.

Those who do not know thought,
Struggle with understanding, knowledge and explanation,
Their bodies act without thinking,
Their unthinking minds depend on their bodies to function.

Those who do not know emotions,
Struggle with empathy, expression and interaction,
Their bodies have no connection with themselves,
Their minds have no connection with others.

Those who do not know communication,
Struggle with truth, learning and teaching,
Their bodies could not explain their truth to others,
Their minds feel frustrated with the perceived ignorance of others.

Those who do not know evil,
Struggle with destructiveness, deceit and negativity,
Their bodies close in unto themselves,
Their minds see a hostile world intent on destroying them.

Those who do not know darkness,
Struggle with self-awareness, ignorance and delusion,
Their bodies depend on confined, strict rules to act,
Their minds cannot know truth from falsity and thus denies all but its own truth.

Those who do not know this reality,
Struggle with the complex process of changing reality,
Their bodies could not keep up with constant adjustment,
Their minds of a static world make no sense.

 

In their process of struggling,
They thus complicate the lives of others around them,
Not because they wanted to make life difficult for others,
But because these consequences happen naturally.

If others could not accept them,
If they could not accept others,
Then the world would have shut its doors,
And they would have shut their doors too.
