Light of Self


As the night merges back into the morning
One awakens from the deep slumber of self
Holding the flickering light within to see
The grand ocean of light around the self
Surrendered surrendered the mind says
Can it say anything for it is surrendered
Surrendered to the ocean around forever
Being awakened is a new bondage of self
Bound by senses initially, liberated yet bound
Bounded by surrender of self to the Master
Allowed the self within to soar high in sky
Allowed the self within to sink deep within
Merging the space limits and ocean depths
HE broke the shackles of self, mind and spirit
Liberated now yet bound by the light within
One merges back into the ocean of liberation
Nothing to hold back, nothing to see now
Only the light within the light to see
Within the realm of light everything exists
Master, Divine, family, friend all exist here
Nothing is beyond this and nothing to attain
Just be, just be, just be, it is everything


~ Maitreya Rudrabhayananda; 10-Sept-1996
