Though hidden out of sight, ego-mind's reserves are massive,
Composed of psyche's impressions that think and act through us.
It's easy to underestimate the extent of their control,
For what puppet ever notices its strings?
This leaves us vulnerable to spiritual overreaching,
Thinking it easy to catapult from the state of self to Self.
Yet none of this disturbs a soaring heart,
Ignited by its true inner longing to awaken.
