Believing in a world beyond my mind
fearful eyes reported what I imagined I would find
but I found no life, no love, no intelligence in matter.
So turning to this tug of Love in me (the one that calls us to be free)
to help me let this mask of grievance go
and reveal what the intellect and eyes don't know,
a long forgotten memory came back to me.
As I stood before you
and the fog began to clear
a loving Presence stood shining here
Surprise! It was our own Self, in answer to our fear.
And then, without a care
I saw this freedom rise up everywhere.
