POETRY

Poetry has a peculiar power. It can dip beneath street consciousness and conduct us to deeper realms. When we approach the mysterious depths of human consciousness, we often feel the need for poetry to express the experiences. At its best, poetry can be both an individual and a universal human experience. As Ira Progoff put it, if you go down deeply enough into your own well, you will hit the underground river common to us all.

Poetry is intrinsically connected to meaning. Poetry is the record of an explosion of inner experience, a momentary convergence of meaning in the mind that, if not recorded, vanishes back into the restless pool of consciousness. At a deeper level, poetry is Being turning to regard Its own qualities and processes.
