The Ego

The Ego is nothing other than the focus
Of one’s conscious attention. It’s like a radar
On a ship. It behaves like a troubleshooter.
If there’s anything ‘out there’ changes will occur
In the ego’s behavioral patterns which are
A completely and woefully weak part of us.

Don’t identify with your radar because you
Will be in a state of constant anxiety.
You’re the whole organism. When you realize
That you are then the ego is not a disguise
But an asset of value in this raging sea.
Each radar is designed to give its point of view.

The body is a miracle of harmony.
Systems function together to keep life afloat.
Yet corpuscles have creatures at battle always.
This must happen. It is how the whole body stays
In balance. The war supports the health of the boat.
A magnificent work is the human body.

What is discord at one level of your being
At a much higher level is perfect order.
Energy is behind physical existence.
Between them there’s a dance of powerful suspense
Your ego is no more than a tape recorder.
Don’t let it put untruth into what you’re seeing.
