Sensing my expansive Self,

How can It fit inside my mind?

My mind tries to control It by

Thinking It down into small bits of identities

That it wishes to bind and devour

Though its efforts are futile

Because my identities are safely

Held in the bosom of the immortal expansive Self.

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.”
