Awaken Beautiful Ones

You first saw it when you were a baby
It was love, the truth of things
But, like everyone else,
That truth faded
Hidden by the mask of falseness
Before long the world of appearances
Swallowed you up
And took over
And you forgot the truth
You lived a life of forgetting

And then you began remembering something
And there was an itch you couldn’t scratch
You knew there was more
But you didn’t know where or how
And the search began

It took you over, the searching and seeking
Terrifying, exciting, challenging, heartbreaking
Facing things, facing hurt and pain
Stripping away the layers of falseness

Until you got a glimpse, for a moment
And there it was, LOVE!
It never vanished, it was hidden
The truth doesn’t die, it becomes obscured
At first the knowing came and went,
And left you frustrated and confused
But slowly slowly it stayed longer and longer
And soon love became your abiding state

And then wisdom arrived
And grace arrived
And then the mythic tale of our lives
Did show itself to you
And a great peace came upon you

Inside the world is love
It cannot die, it can only be obscured

Awaken Beautiful Ones,
We have some remembering to do.
