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 posts.

Knowing that mind's world of strife is self-inflicted,Why ever feel confused or confounded?
For isn't a secret game being played out,Where winning the Beloved's favor is defined by loss?
And what is that but being dislodged of our burdens,While beholding the mystery of ever-present Self in all?
Then, as mind's knots get undone, and an inner delight released,Every joy and pain can be felt as more grist for the mill.

How can ego-mind surrender to Self's presence,When it knows not the 'how' and is fearful of the 'why'?
At best it can become calm and quiescent,Giving in to our awakening-self.
For there, in our deepest being, all questions are answered,Where surrenderance is natural, a built-in feature.
And where a new give and take opens the door,Revealing the radiance of the Beloved within.

One may feel awakening's breeze wafting their way,And even feel the Beloved's living presence.
Yet a thorny problem can raise its head,A tendency to limit, to put all this on a leash.
For even as love's winds are blowing,Down below, ego-mind's crews slam the hatches shut.
Trying to insure its hard drive isn't touched,That its most valuable treasures aren't singed or burned away.

With each moment spent in remembrance of the Beloved,What previously felt like forced labor gets transformed into a gift.For then heart/mind evokes awakening's presence,Allowing all to be seen as mercy and grace.
Then self's effacement confirms its actual nothingness,Allowing us to know our path to Self leads to everything.
And if the Beloved's presence insinuates itself throughout creation's fabric,Couldn't this very moment show us our nothingness is nothing to fear?
