To our dreaming-self, Self's dreamless state seems an infinity away,
Appearing ever more impossible to reach.
Yet those fully awakened casually state there's no distance whatsoever,
Confounding ego-mind by such seemingly whimsical remarks.
Surely there's some way out of our endless dreaming,
Perhaps, but from no point within our feverish imagination.
Best we stand aside and let heart's true longing flourish,
And let awakening's approach dispell all nagging doubts.
