Where are the escape hatches to elude ego-mind's grasp?
That may depend on how well our distractions hide them.
Ego-mind's web surrounds us like a force field,
Its power fueled by heart's forgetfulness of Self.
But awakening's presence pulls out the plug,
Suspending our constant attention to a separate self.
If there's a first step in sensing this presence,
Perhaps it's feeling one's constant distance from it.
