What better proof of ego-mind's domination,
Than inability to feel presence of Self, of the Beloved?
And if it's not this ego-mind that awakens,
Why use it as a home base for searching?
Still, experiencing this false self affords opportunity,
A way to see the untruth of who we think we are.
Best to ignore this stonewalling mind and welcome its disillusionment,
By wholeheartedly seeking the Real, by inviting the Beloved's pleasure.
