Ego-mind is permeated with bits and pieces of programming,
Altogether comprising what makes us tick.
Their makeup forms a mirror we look into,
Making us see who and what we take ourselves to be.
Some assume the spell we're in can be dismissed with a finger's snap,
While others assert there's nothing we can do about it.
If awakening is our due, why not prepare as best we can,
And invite heart's shock of recognition when it comes our way?
