The Greatest Impediment

You alone are consciousness!
All thought solidifies
The no-thing-ness that exists
Beyond our senses five

Alive but not perceiving
The ego’s trap ensues
Day by day it dulls the sense
Of everything that’s you

Awareness of the space between
The desires of your script
The way others have taught you to behave
Prevents your essence to exist

Choose to escape from reason
From the emotions of this world
Transcend the dualism
Let your spirit be unfurled

The greatest impediment
Which stops you from being
Is all the things you think about
All you touch, taste, smell and are seeing

So go beyond the pettiness
Of I, and me, and mine
Let your spirit dance so high
And enter the sublime
