Become Me

I was born in my mother’s womb
but she did not create me
I eat the salt of this earth
but I do not belong to her

 

It is through this body that I walk
but I am not it
It is my mind through which I work
but it could not contain me

 

In the limitations of time and space I live
but it has not denied me
unboundedness

 

I was born like you, I eat like you,
sleep like you, and I will die like you
but the limited has not limited me,
life’s bondages have not bound me

 

As the dance of life progresses,
this space, this unboundedness,
has become unbearably sweet

 

Become love and reach out
Become me

 

Love & Grace

 
seperator
