Why do we feel deep nostalgia
For the stars in the night sky?
It is because we know implicitly
That the universe itself is our origin.

There is something we already know,
Even if we cannot put it into words.
We know more than what we have as knowledge, and
This is what it means to be human.

We cannot grasp the truth of the world
Merely by applying linear logic.
It is necessary to combine it with
Our experiences and the power of intuition.

That which sublimates into a power beyond words,
Putting together
All of our knowledge and experiences,
Including those from our past lives,
Is the true nature of wisdom.
