Ego-mind's maze both amazes and dismays us,
Holding us entrapped til we unravel is puzzles.
For its doubts and fears keep us in the maze,
Keeping us from coming out or seeing through it.
Until we get the whole picture revealing its own nothingness,
Until we see it's not our ego-mind that ever awakens.
Then we're readied to see the key to our inner treasure,
To feel the longing that burns away all veils to Self.
