It seems there's a mushrooming of spiritual experiencing,
Could it be awakening's undercurrents stirring the pot?
Some of these experiences are carrots on a stick,
Leading one's interest away from ego-mind's fixations.
But is ego-mind truly transformed,
Or just submerged, biding its time?
Eventually we all discover there's only one game in town,
As we're drawn willy-nilly to the Beloved's threshold.
