A Canticle for The Experiential

If it’s not experiential, it’s a borrowed belief.
Beliefs may be borrowed for a limited time on faith.
If a belief is not confirmed by one’s experience, return it.
If a belief is confirmed by one’s experience, burn it.

There’s no scientific data supporting
the almost pre-Copernican-like belief
that consciousness is
an epiphenomenon of the brain.

Simple awareness sees
that the entire universe is,
including all scientific data,
in, of, and by consciousness.

Any belief indicating
consciousness is an epiphenomenon
need never have been borrowed—
at least the sun appears to circle the earth.

But the earth circles the sun.
And the sun appears in consciousness.
And consciousness is witnessed by
this reflection of awareness.
