Speaking To Myself

Speaking To My Self

So Silent! So still an ocean!
Listening to mystic lore
Hoping I can hear it speak to my heart.
Flawless, perfect and pure speech
Wondering who is speaking and to whom
Eager to seek my self; Eager to know
Who's really inside me? Only Me; I know.
Striving to settle here; Fighting a spiritual jihad
Who can unsettle me! Deprive me of my home!
Who can send me in the wrong direction?
My self showcases me in all directions
My spirit is calm and quite here
I've found the paradise lost
My soul is crying with joy
I am everything that I am!
I lost my days exploring why I am here
For what purpose? Under what plan?
My self is my Master plan: I know
I was always here; never did I fall
I ask you with a sincere heart, O God!
Lead me kindly in my ark
Back to the garden of eternity

    My self showcases me in all directions
    My spirit is calm and quite here
    I've found the paradise lost
    My soul is crying with joy
    I am everything that I am! /// beautiful expression the self which shows the others whole merge into itself

    'I lost my days exploring why I am here'. Self realisation is realising God and is the essence of spirituality
