As I sit here with my eyes closed and my legs crossed
I contemplate my life.
Where must I go, what must I do
to be one with the universe?
And, with thought my jangled nerves relax
And I let the busy crazy world of things all away.
There is no body, there is no need.
The scared spot is in this place, where life begins and ends.
We begin as children receiving the imprint of society
Later we learn and question the old ways.
We become aware of desire, our yearnings increase.
We must clothe and feed ourselves, the need is real.
But, as our life progresses
We feel empty, is there not something more.
Where are we headed,
What can I do to help others?
Suddenly I realize, I am complete
The beauty surrounds me, the glory of life is this world.
And then I know, the awakening of spirit
the lotus blossoms, my consciousness is in flower.
My bliss is within me alone.
I share divinity with each person and thing.
My needs are fulfilled,
I thirst no longer.
