What a pity ego-mind can't recognize our essential Self,
For then how much simpler true remembrance would be.
Even our awakening-self seems to struggle holding on to its niche,
And not get squeezed out by ego-mind's territorial claims.
But when this self kicks into gear that niche becomes truly spacious,
As awareness awakens from the spell it's usually under.
Then life's feast truly begins and every morsel is put to good use,
And even forgetfulness of Self becomes a vehicle of remembrance.
