If we face truth with an eagle stare,
an unwavering poise, a consistent flair,
the ego’s power will lose its appeal,
the barriers of adversity will surely yield.
There’s a powerful reason we avoid what IS,
and why we miss this wonderful bliss;
it’s because the path to truth is beset with pain,
and an apparent illusion that you’ll never gain.
As you advance along this path,
the ego’s duality increases its wrath,
the walls of your sufferings enlarge and grow
because person you are is there for show.
Truth is divided into life’s contradictions,
confusing paradoxes and mental conflictions.
These will increase the further you go,
hindering your ability to perceive and know.
These conflictions are there to deceive,
blocking your way to truly receive.
It’s a battle of wills with the ego and you,
conning you always to halt what is true.
The cause of why we don’t understand
the myriad forms of God’s great hand,
is because we are biased in a personal way;
“My view sticks and it’s here to stay! ”
