search for 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.”

Look beyond thoughts, beyond feelings.

Look beyond words, beyond all sense-objects.

Look beyond stillness, beyond silence.

Look beyond Self, beyond Consciousness.

Look beyond Love.

Look beyond looking itself.

Then you truly see what you truly are, what the world is.

The Self is the key that unlocks the door to infinite Love.

That key lies at the depths of your heart.

Be still. Close your eyes. Search for it.

In your searching, it will come to you.
