Who awakens? Not you or I but our inner true Self, that core that is covered and encrusted by who we think we are.
Themes presented in the eBook Awakening's Treasure continue to unfold in these weekly posts.

Could it be we so believe that we are who we think we are,That our main occupation is evading the lie of that?
Have we become so overcome by ego-mind’s takeover, That we’re like stunned victims of a hit-and-run?
Is our situation truly so dire, That we only imagine we’re awake and need a dream to feel real?
The good news is that, dreaming or awake, we’re all in the same boat, Pursuing or pursued by awakening’s urge to awaken through us.

We're dazzled by ego-mind's ploys,Overcome by its hypnotic powers.
Though seeemingly unchallengeable,Isn't it actually a shy, even furtive, creature?
Though seemingle immovable and impenetrable,When unravelling does it not reveal a hidden treasure?
If so, this ego-mind can become an ally,An accomplice in the biggest jailbreak of all.

How to reduce your jail time,If feeling caged in by dreaming of who you think you are?
Maybe go for good behavior and early probation,Or even pulling off a jailbreak.
What does walking out of the prison cell amount to,But turning away from the maze of mind's bazaars?
Then allowing the radiance of an ever-present Presence into one's heart,Letting its mercy flow throughout one's veins.

Why slam our shutters shut against life's storms,When that locks us in more firmly to who we think we are?Yet could that turbulence be put to use,Perhaps to turn the turbines of inner remembrance?
Then an indiscriminate gratitude for all that is, for whatever might be,Might well become the key to our inner treasure.Though even lackluster efforts on our part can't obstruct,What's finally awakening's unstoppable eventuality.
