I looked for me in the things I do

And found only ideas, expectations, and fears.

Then I looked for me beyond me

And found light, an infinite ocean, and an all-encompassing cosmic wave of Love.

For awhile, I stopped looking.

I lost the sense of me.

It was ever evolving, ever unfolding.

Now, I have a glimpse of Reality

Beneath the unfolding

That whispers, “I am what I am not

And what I am not is what I’ve always been.”

On the road to discover what you are,

Walk out on who you are.

If you can perceive the difference,

You are well on your way.

Hurt and fear are twin fires,

We pass through to get to liberation.

Do not ignore them.

But the more you feed them,

The more you burn.

Instead, fill your water buckets with

Forgiveness and Compassion,

Then keep moving forward.

Take a tour of the structures of your consciousness, of your being

It’s your house, after all.

It is wise to know

What’s inside

And what it’s made of.

Otherwise, you might be robbed

Or host unwelcome guests

Without even knowing it.

Do not take a regular path,

Do not look for an irregular path.

Make your path by choosing

A non-path.

Follow the natural pull of Being.
