My True Self is a person who’s in a high state
Far above all the contrast I find on the ground.
It’s a game we are playing – my True Self and me.
It will hide its self somewhere not easy to see.
Yet it’s out in the open where it can be found.
It will guide me by noticing when I feel great.

“Feeling Better!”, it tells me when I overcome
The conflict of the moment by making a shift
  In the thoughts I create. “Feeling Worse!”, it will say
When I let daily conflict lead my thoughts astray.
My True Self is a player who loves to uplift.
It can play the game well like the beat of a drum.

Getting ‘warmer’ or ‘colder’ was great as a child.
I had no trouble finding it given good clues.
And the player who hides it well knows where it is
So the one who is searching need not be a wiz.
All I need do is listen to the one self who’s
The most noble clue giver since humans were wild.
