Many attempt to open up to some aspect of 'higher self,'
Even if only a version acceptable to ego-mind.
Then there's no disruption, no ruffling of feathers,
Though, in spite of this, it's still a starting point.
Even this can lead to discovery of a treasure,
Of a grace hidden within whatever we most avoid.
And even this can eventually lead to the ultimate disaster,
The unavoidable state of I-am-no-separate-self.
