What constantly objects to giving up control?
What else but ego-mind's designs and devisings.
What is it that invites effacement of what we think we are?
What but our awakening-self seeking to annihilate separation from Self.
And what does ego-mind seek to avoid?
What but that precious state prized above all by our inner core.
For it reflects that one Self we're all branches of,
That one Beloved awakening through our labors of love.
