The Beginning

Beginnings are for everyone the same.
One recognizes that beyond the shell
of self, opinions to account are lame.
An appetite for fact, begins to swell
till nothing but the Truth will satisfy
the need to know implicitly, "what role
my consciousness will play before I die,
and what, if anything fulfills my soul?"
These ancient questions have more answer than
a novice new to Quest would comprehend.
The soul-ward seeking consciousness of man
in stages, will it's own dark night transcend.
Infinity is obvious, therefore
the quest most holy is to Self-Explore
