Previous Poem, Name and form hide Reality: This is the Teaching Part One, Before notions and creations you exist. Next Poem, I am the Ocean and all forms seen


Before notions and creations you exist.


There are no words for That which is beyond words.

Self doesn’t need to understand Itself.

Freedom is before the concept of freedom.

You are what remains

when the concepts of “I,” mind, and past disappear.

Nothingness is no concept.

Ego and mind and all creations

arise out of Self as Self.

Even the ugliest of doubts

and the most separate of differences

rise form the beautiful Source of Isness.

In Self there are no do’s and don’ts.

If there is unhappiness you are not unhappy;

you are the Untouched Awareness of this unhappiness.

As waves are not separate from Ocean,

nor rays from sun,

you are not separate from Existence.

You are the Moment in which all is.
