Transcending All That Is Mind

Meditation is much more than relaxing & clearing the mind. Indeed it is also more than knowing the self or connecting with a higher nature. Meditation at its highest level is the striving to attain the original state of existence. It is that which put forth the first vibrations of consciousness that rippled within the entirety and gave forth the multitude of lesser states of consciousness (it is debatable whether lesser states of consciousness are actually such or whether the lowering of such is only an illusory effect produced by the mind. This is also highly probable for the separation of minds & consciousness.). Of all things known three states can be agreed upon as the basis of our reality, the material, the energy & the consciousness. Of these three most great minds agree that consciousness is of the highest & the most elusive. It is as difficult to control the mind as it is to control the wind & so to is it just as hard to study the varying levels of consciousness (Especially the higher ones) without ones self transcending all levels in order to necessarily be in an observational vantage point. One cannot properly study what is on high unless one becomes eye level with that which is raised.

Meditation can be used as a vehicle of consciousness transcendence. It has been said that all is mind. If indeed all is mind then in order to properly study consciousness one would need to transcend the trappings of the mind. The mind and it’s five senses are enjoyed by many but the sensational extremes of the senses which humans are drawn to serve as a permanent distraction from the natural progression of humanity from its current lower state to something much greater. I have heard many teachers exclaim that meditation is the only worthy pursuit & I understand where they are coming from. Meditation, can be a vehicle to elevate ones self to almost unthinkable levels of awareness if practiced correctly. These few individuals who reach such high levels of consciousness & wisdom benefit humanity greatly. As they say a rising tide raises all ships.

It is difficult to put words to something that is beyond things & barely attainable by thought, something you cannot truly study, touch, taste & see. I find that the word consciousness while understood for its meaning is not worthy of that which we are speaking. To know this is to understand the steepness of the mountain seekers of wisdom climb. Meditators whether they know it or not have opened the door to an unknown path that leads to a greatness that is beyond perception but can be known through experience which becomes wisdom. I hope these shared thoughts resonate with someone out there. I have been on a long journey of raising my consciousness, leaving behind material desires in pursuit of a higher state & yet trying to balance that with what is expected of me as a being in this world where lower states of consciousness are praised & materialism is the most widely taught tradition. Be well my good friends, I will write again & I wish you well in all of your pursuits.

Darkest Of Days (Petrarchan Sonnet)


Slowly we capsize into an ocean of fire
Liquid flames splashing onto our lost ship as it sinks
Drifting into an icy oblivion seeing obliteration’s brink
Tears touch and lips meet as we draw closer to flames bemired
Let us hold each other our flesh becoming one afire
A blaze of moments squandered as fiery ignorance shrinks
Flaming passion turned into icy water of a hearts jinx
Now kiss me harder as we part forever in this bed of fire

Once we two were naked without vulgarity
Our nudity glimpsed only by a heavens eye
Together with time we birthed a child beyond purity’s sigh
The world took our fruit and cast it to fray
Cleansed of our wasted moments sanctity
Here in our darkest of days.

Beauty Acrylic Print By Mikial Millard

Liquid of life runs from her eyes a blue stream turned gold in the morning SUN
The softness of her finger tips holding a body shattered like thin glass
A veil darker than black covers the teary eyes of an only SON
Ashes of her heart floating on the wind into the void as would a blade of grass

Stillness Acrylic Print By Mikial Millard

Wherever the light/wisdom remains let it shine brilliantly enough to break free from the chains of darkness/ignorance shattering all illusions. Wherever intelligence lives let it think, measure and perceive liberation & expression. In the end of this long path of life let those with a HIGHER MIND find wisdom of their OWN understanding and let wisdom do that which is right for the benefit of ALL without attachment to result. Let each individual break the chains of the past that hold us back from true progress. Let us ALL in some way leave behind a legacy of light/wisdom for ALL generations present & to come. May we do so fearlessly for the sake of ALL. – Mikial Kenneth Millard

Flower Of Forgiveness (Free Verse)


Blossoming Acrylic Print By Mikial Millard

Let all tears that fall 
Land upon seeds of hope
That blossom into beautiful flowers of forgiveness
For ourselves as well as others.

THE END OF US (Epyllion-Hexameter-Little Epic)

Know Thy Self Acrylic Print By Mikial Millard

Kiss me as the stars fall from sky
Don’t look as the moon kisses mars
What beautiful disaster comes
As we lay here in ecstasy

Look yonder at the burning woods
leaping flames lesser than our hearts
Animals dashing but our hearts faster
The end of them the start of us

Liquid soil in which men sink
The Sun grows dimmer by the hour
We will conceive a child of MIND
As mother Earth destroys our bodies

Feel electric of my fingers
As I taste fire of your lips
No, don’t see the one’s who suffer
Together we make a new SUN

Hold firm to me the time has come
To see if love is eternal
The cold waves are now upon us
Waves of pain Tsunami of mind

The waters fill my lungs swiftly
I speak with my eyes only now
Under water holding you close
Eternal our love forever

Hold firm to your black canoe as it burns in a river of boiling light
Rocky is the acid like passage punishing every wrong move made
Butterflies that bite fended off by mosquito’s who bring kisses of delight
Division of the mind, difference and sameness has made you a slave

Loosen your grip on the dark vessel and leap into the boiling waters
Find through the fear that seat next to comfort as your mothers soft words
If the mind cannot be tamed at its borders
Then shatter through mind and transcend consciousness itself, be free of the 3rd

The wet of the boat is not from the river but from your tears
Existence, nonexistence, both existence and nonexistence, neither existence nor non existence
Let go of that deathly sinking boat and grab hold of the plane of heavenly cheers
Leave behind sameness, difference, both sameness and difference, neither sameness nor difference and transcend all of the pain with perseverance via persistence

I closed my eyes as all hope was lost in the pain
Exhaling slowly as the crows fell from the sky as rain.

Glossary Below
*The 3rd is in reference to the third state of consciousness 1. Repository consciousness 2. Conceptual consciousness .3 Sensory consciousness
*Existence, non existence, both existence and non existence, neither existence nor non existence (This is the Tetralemma)
*The crows represent death, and when death is transcended via the mind, when all things are known as perceptions of the mind then death itself must die or cease to exist, this is a Mahayana way of thinking.
* The black canoe represents life
*The river of light represents many things (The heavens for some, enlightenment for many, the Tathagata Gharba for others, purusha, atman or nirguna brahman, jesus, god also. What the light is, is for you to decide.)

Let there be goodness somewhere in the darkness
May the waters of wisdom touch the lips of those who thirst
Where in this world can we find true salvation?
May the mind of the Good be a temple of solace

Do not let the end come before liberation
World let us find wisdom & peace before we leave

If there is a higher love somewhere
Let us live in that place and leave behind the tears we have shed in the world.

What is strength? It is the letting go of ego/vanity and pride for the benefit of those you love. It is giving peace even when you yourself have never experienced it.  What is humility? It is the sacrifices that are made in order to bring compassion, comfort, safety and sustenance  to all who are worthy. What is a lie? Not seeing that the ones you love need you more than you need yourself. What is truth? That sometimes loving & understanding yourself is the beginning to creating a better future not only for yourself but for all that you love. May wisdom and peace come to you all.


SACRIFICE – giving up of material items, ego/vanity, selfishness or all of the above in order to benefit another. It is selfless satisfaction in the aiding and comforting of another which does not directly benefit the one who sacrifices.

Compassion – The giving of understanding to an individual or situation which results in positive action in thought or physical / social response. It is the rendering acknowledgement of the validity of a redeemable situation and the possibility of comfort or relief being given to an individual who is capable or worthy of receiving such a thing.

**These words are my thoughts alone and I do not expect, want or hope for anyone’s mind to change. I do not force thoughts on anyone. Let those who will resonate understand my words and if so then I am satisfied. May wisdom and goodness come to you all if you so desire it. May there always be people who through wisdom work to peacefully benefit all beings of this planet, and may they always have a place here on Earth.
