First…

First,  

the  

“I”  

imagines.    

Then the trouble begins.    

With indiscriminate awareness,  

“You” imagine:

  “I’m a Christian, 

“I’m a Muslim, 

“I’m a Hindu, 

“I’m a Jew.   

“You” gain a dogma.  

“You”  

lose 

a  

friend. 

  

“You” buy a story, 

where there can be no glory. 

     

First, 

the  

“I”  

imagaines. 

   

“I’m a Sinner, 

“I’m a Saint. 

“I’m am rich,

“I” am poor,

I am black,

I am white,

I am gay,

I am straight. 

“I” am lonely and unloved. 

   

And, 

  

in your imagined separation, 

“you”

create a path, 

and a process, 

a story of how “you” will return 

to a perfection  

that was never lost. 

  

There is no crevasse to be crossed, 

no karma to be gained. 

There is nowhere to go, 

and

nothing to do. 

Centre the self,

quiet the self,

Become

the

Self.
