Conscious Levels

Conscious levels are manifestations,
Of quantities and degrees,
So the levels of Thought, that we have,
Develop from mysteries.

We think with options, we can change,
Then change the options too,
I begin to believe that people,
Have no idea, of what to do.

I'm willing to look for yet awhile,
But Time is about to close,
And if I wait for Time to pass,
That's what No Man Knows.

We have one level when we're born,
Another when we die,
And many manifestations in between,
And that's the reason why.

If we look shallow, when we want,
Then that level is of greed,
But if we are strong in Spirit,
The level is of Need.

One must put forth his talent,
To feel the Power there,
And one must work with reason,
For his deeds, to all be fair.

When we can see the Earth from High,
And know we see for real,
You find, the level that you're on,
Becomes a total thrill.

Always keep in mind, of God,
And things His Son, has taught,
And with that level of reason there,
You'll remember, what you Thought.

For Spirit is in all of us,
Even those, that's lost,
And no, this level of consciousness,
Has a mighty Cost.

As a child in our first estate,
Was the closest time with Power,
It was then, and only then,
Our seconds turned to hours.

i loved the title, it has been in me for a while

I like this a lot and find much that is true in it whatever one's religious beliefs. But that first stanza is stunning and will compel me to contemplate it, consciously and subconcsciously, for a long time. I'm not sure where it will take me, but then that's what poetry does.
