To you who seek

The Light of Life

It is a fool’s journey …

An endless search

Not found on paths of glory

Or through magic mushrooms of any kind

Not found in sacred practices

Or harsh disciplines

It cannot be found in achievements

Or years of denying this or that

The world is full of possibilities

Lo here, lo there it claims

But offers only phantoms in return for your devotion

The search it self is a trap

It validates your separate self

And places the Light always

Beyond your grasp

But stay a while in Silence

The lonely quiet of Freedom

Which beckons beyond your search

Declaring Freedom Now

There is no searching required

The Light you seek has never left

IT is ‘who’ YOU Really Are

With only one request

Give up this fantasy of a personal identity

Dissolve this false self

In the fire of Stillness

Come Home to YOU

Who has never left IT SELF
