Words To Consider


You ask me
What I know
And get
No answer.
You ask
What good is that
And get
A smile.

It's stupid
You say
That I act this way
And yet -
What has this body
To prove to you?
Why should this body
Mould your universe?

Don't get me wrong -
I'm flattered you've asked,
But -
Who can walk
Your path for you?
Who else can explore
The uniqueness
Of your divine self?

This is what
The path of Spiritual Seeking
Is all about -
The exploration
Of the divine SELF!

Seek Truth.

The IT IS.
The Light and Sound.
The MASTER.
These are Soul's truths -
These are ITs guides!

Me?

I explore.
I serve.
I smile.
