Ponderance ...

There is great frustration in
Trying to locate
That which is non-local.
Many refer to this as searching.
Yet, one need not go anywhere
To find the Great Immediate.
Insight eradicates confusion.
No longer equating the way things seem with
The what is
Life, ever-fresh awareness of being
the shadow cannot be
Mistaken for the substance
So what is keeping one from being in the natural state?
One is constantly moving away from oneself.
One wants to be happy;
One is dissatisfied with one’s experiences of life.
One wants new ones.
One wants to perfect oneself,
To change oneself.
Trying to be something other than what one is, is
The going away from oneself.
It is the resistance to What-Is.
The desire to alter this you, is
The only energy that sustains it.
In the absence of this energy,
You cannot continue;
Then, the natural state shines effortlessly.
