The door has always been there, throughout time, But always it has been a partially shut door We had to squeeze through To discover our true nature And our one compassionate heart
That door is now WIDE OPEN And freely available to all No need to squeeze through No privilege of enlightenment for the few
Now it is possible for all Still it requires persistence, Surrender of the righteous belief system And a willingness to face ourselves
But there is a revolution happening IN YOU
Friend, this is the time, now, here, in the midst of this structural collapse Open your heart and mind Turn off the fear, and all the causes of fear And embrace your inner authority As the cosmic being you are Stop all activity that distracts you from your one true purpose, INNER REVOLUTION.
Power, authority, dignity The truth of us Usurped in youth By conscious or unconscious action Becomes occluded Covered by shame, guilt, rage, unworthiness Which embeds itself in the delicate human design Seemingly impossible to remove But wait!
There comes a time when we must decide That we are no longer defined by the insults That happened in the past The line in the sand, the ’no more’ place within
And when we do that we are called to our inner authority And it is challenged by the world, by us, by others And we may struggle to find who we are Beyond the embedded self protective mechanism But there is freedom in all of us And nothing that we really are vanishes forever And we have more power than we realize
Spirituality doesn’t do this for us Other people can’t do this for us We must find the line ourselves And stand upon it Over and over again if need be With a kind of resolve That makes it clear to the universe We are done being defined by all that happened.
Those who does not know themselves Cannot discern the difference Between the snake oil seller And the wise one And will often follow the snake oil seller Because their persuasive techniques Appeal to the unmet emotions Still held in the unexamined and unconscious system
He or she Who can master The agitated self The obsessive self The righteous self The self that seeks power The aggrandized self The arrogant one The worthless one The self that imagines it is special And the one that imagines it is not The self that is constantly at war
Is free And an asset to the liberation of others
He or she who is mastered by the self Is a slave to their own ignorance And a danger to the liberation of others
Mastery of self Has nothing to do with force And everything to do with Surrendering the ego To love’s all consuming fire
Without humility The rampaging ego Will rule the earth Creating endless division And feeding on The fear it creates
