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.

What's the problem if there's an absence of Presence,When it can be an opportunity to see one's false self?
To see this emperor really has no clothes,Just surrounded by fears lurking in shadow.
To feel a cluttered mind smothering heart's flame,Inspires new eyes looking through a new and naked mind.
Opens the door to spaciousness of an inner garden,A state free of strangers, an invitation for the Beloved.

Mind is naturally critical, and rightfully so,Of aspirations born of its own desires.
What then does it really take,To see beyond ego-mind's hapless state?
Only when aspiration rises from heart's unknowable depths,Can it truly qualify as the real deal.
And only when, before and after mind's machinations,The Beloved's radiance comes shining through the cracks.

It may all begin with window shopping,Attempting to begin the journey from self to Self.
It may begin with sampling assorted systems,Even if as amusement to entertain a bored mind.
But in good time the hook will be set, like it or not,Reeling one out of their comfort zone.
Exposing one to a new rarefied atmosphere,To the fragrance of the Beloved's garden.

Whether you call it contrition or repentance,Exposing our false self is like stewing in our own juice.
What it amounts to is taking care of business, doing whatever it takes,Carting the leftovers of ego-mind's debris to the burn pile.
Whether this process is gentle or roughshod may vary,Yet hidden within is a special happiness.
It's an authentic action of awakening intelligence,A movement fueled by a deep inner longing.
