to define myself

to define myself

i was trying to come to know my self
to define my “Self”
so i closed my eyes that i may dwell in silence and go within
deep within.
images began to flash before me in a rush
i was going back in time.
now mind you, in the conscious unfolding i am finite
there is a beginning and an end
from seed to fruit to compost
these were the barriers of the limited i needed to reconcile
that i may go beyond the boundaries
the containers that are collected as realities
countless times
we accumulate the experiences in hoping to define
but who can speak the word of truth eternal
who has awakened to see the dream beyond the dream
and into the pool of truth

the images of light kept flashing faster and faster
and there i was
i did not recognize me
for what i perceived i was
i was not

i was not all the things i have been taught to be
there was an absence
of doctrine
of teachings
of chastisement
of rules
of guidance
of form
of boxes
there was no place for me to sleep
i was a vibrant and conscious sound
a pure energy
a radiating Sun
i felt the allness and the nothingness of being
as one
there no longer existed the need
to define myself
