The Searcher

At that instance, the briefest second of time
That first moment when the mind is fully opened
The infinite spirit of the universe finally revealed
My soul left wanting, to wander and hunt
Dazed and confused, always the search
Need to find new teachers and friends

Do you too yet seek?

The Serenity Within You

Seek to empty your mind of all thoughts
Allow your heart be at peace, rest your soul
Watch the boiling turmoil of the life around you
Contemplate their final return, their peace yet ahead

See the beginnings of all live in the universe
Observe the circle of the return to common origin
The returning to origin as the long sought serenity

In not realizing the origin, you stumble in confusion and sorrow
In the knowing you become tolerant, disinterested, amused

Kindly as a grandmother, dignified as a king.
Immersed in the wonder of the source, you cope
Dealing easily with whatever life brings you
And at the end, when death comes, you are ready

Walking the path of your own circle
Returning to the origin of your beginning
Rejoining to once more become a part of the whole

This, the journey of the great circle
Small steps leading to the serenity of the one

The serenity within you…
