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.”
