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.

Many aspire to self-integration,And doubtless a healthy ego has an important role.
A useful aim but shortsighted if overdone,After all, is a bulletproof ego-mind the goal?
If that's the case, best to avoid spiritual enterprises,For what do they lead to but this very self's undoing?
Best then just leaving ego-mind in the dark,While awakening's undercurrents carry on their quiet work.

Awakening isn't necessarily a bed of roses,As it ruthlessly reveals our inner disarray.
Ego-mind's many disguises get disclosed,No longer propping up what we usually think we are.Whether seeing this inner poverty or sensing the Beloved's glory,Both serve to prepare heart's flame of longing.Whether bearing the pain of a fragmented mind or inspired by Presence,Both are signposts on the return path to Self.

If awakening's song is always singing,Its sound is always under usual mind's radar.
Yet when is a busy mind quieted enough,Giving an inkling of that song's sensation?
Ego-mind's siren voices are designed for one thing,Distracting us to fixate on business at hand.
Bur an instant of inner silence could break that spell,Touching the living treasure ever beckoning us.

Our personality may seem fixed and well entrenched,Ego-mind's fortress solid as a rock.
Yet a glimse under the covers reveals another story,A shifting chaos barely self-contained.
This can free us to find firmer ground,Opening the way to a transitional self.
A place where life's spark is sustained,A contrast to ego-mind's wooden dullness.
