Each of our inner I's rules its own little kingdom,
Each insisting on having its way.
Each controls its own watertight compartment,
And all together keep our small self afloat.
But these controls get overriden by the impulse to awaken,
As the sudden shock paralyzes ego-mind and all its parts.
Then all focus shifts to our awakening-self,
All dread suddenly replaced by inexplicable joy.
Note: Awakening's Treasure (see top of page) will be available December 14 through 16 at no cost through its Amazon Kindle catalog page.
