The Real Me

The Self Undefined

I pretend to be someone significantly small
Compared to who I really am. Poor little me
Is afflicted with beingness. Can I awake
From this dream of my selfhood? Was it a mistake
That the universe carelessly caused me to be?
My flirtation with waking up leads to my fall.

What the whole universe is doing I do too.
Waking up is the realization that I
Am something that the whole universe does just as
The wave is something that the ocean does. Life has
Dualistic convergence. I exemplify
All there is as one being with one point of view.

Not like being locked in a dark room forever
Will it be when I die. That’s not experience.
Nonexistence everlasting is so absurd.
Only from fearful people is such a thing heard.
When I wake up from this life the next will commence,
And this self that I am now will exist no more.

Consciousness is continuous. As people die,
More come into existence. I am every one
But can only experience one at a time.
As I am this one now, my awareness is prime,
And I know that I will never get it all done.
I’ve respect for the laws with which I must comply.

Nirvana

Personal Heaven On Earth

Nirvana means breathe out. What a relief that was!
Let it go because it will come back if you do,
But if you hold on to it you will suffocate.
Who on earth would want to be caught dead in that state?
A person who has reached nirvana is one who
Is blown out in accordance with natural laws.

There’s no moralism in this whatsoever.
Just let go. Do not cling to anything at all.
If you put your hand near fire you know it will burn.
If you want less anxiety then you must learn
How to let go completely. By dropping the ball,
It will bounce back when you’re ripe for the endeavor.

Keeping up with the rat race is part of the game
But a minuscule one when compared to relief
That surpasses the ego’s will to cling tightly
To that which isn’t fun anymore. You will see
That you have all eternity. Life isn’t brief
When you know that the universe is yours to claim.

So, relax and let the forces of evil be.
Let the world heal itself without your discontent
Because you’re no crusader when you are uptight.
Breathing Out has no view on what’s wrong or what’s right.
As you do so you will find that it’s time well spent.
You will become a master eventually.

Allow

A Clear Open Path

The highway is wide open. You have the green light
To go forward in your life. No traffic exists
That may cause misdirection or some resistance
Which will slow down the process. It doesn’t make sense
Not to go when you’re prompted. The ego resists
What it otherwise thinks is a path far from right.

Your vortex is your heaven. It’s filled to the brim
With specific requests that you’ve been putting there.
Now it’s time to see the full manifestation
To flood into your experience. You’re the one
Who allows it to happen by being aware
Of your headlights when they shine a little too dim.

You don’t yet know who you are, but it can be known.
The important role you play in the expansion
Of all that there is simply cannot be denied.
You will succeed in life with your heart as your guide.
Through self-realization new life has begun,
And despite your uniqueness, you’re never alone.

Long before you arrived on earth this was the plan.
You came not to deny yourself of anything
And everything you dream of. You came to allow
All that you have created to manifest now.
As it happens your life is more interesting.
You are here to be happy as much as you can.
