We usually take no notice of awakening's presence germinating within,
Though our destiny unceasingly edges us along that path.
Consciousness is fixed on who we think we are as ego-mind,
That flimsiest veneer dominating our lives.
This delays any approach to the Beloved's threshold,
That place where our fully awakened Self resides in us.
When will our awakening-self dare navigate this gulf,
And revive us from illusion's hypnotic spell?
