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 is inner surrendering but letting go,Abandoning, piece by piece, who or what we take ourselves to be.
Could this trigger some sense of danger,Some foreboding, some flirting with disaster?
Would one feel ego-mind's extreme vulnerability,Much like a goat staked as lion bait?Perhaps, after all, a voluntary submission would follow, Fearless with love's ardor, even careless, before the Beloved's presence.

For most folks, taking is no problem, As ego-mind usually likes to feel deserving.
More interesting is the question of what and how to give, And is it an act of love or duty?
When duty’s not felt, it’s an act of love and vice versa, And when both are felt as one, it’s a new and different act.
Then the mass of who we think we are is lessened,Allowing us to sense new rhythms flowing from the Beloved's court.

One may state I am That, I am not this, nobody is here, etc.,But might there be some no pilot error there?
Truly these assertions have power,But only in accord with true recognition and sincerity of purpose.
Otherwise, constantly reasserting is hard work,A desperate race against borrowed time.
Best not to plaster over what one thinks one is,Providing ego-mind with even better hiding places.

Sometimes ego-mind's props are gradually eroded,Sometimes there's more than we're prepared to handle.
There could even be a cataclysm,An avalanche wiping away all obstructions and debris.
Where's the give and take in this process,If the Beloved's giving is comprised only of taking away?
And where does that leave this small dot of a self,But on the very verge of starvation?
