A Poem: Light

You are a light. There is an eye deep within that examines this light. Sometimes, despite your eye, you cannot see this light. There is a shadow attached to your feet. Sometimes we can meet this shadow and it terrifies us. Stop. Look within. Now look at your shadow. There is not one without the other. The greater the light, the greater the shadow and I can truly say that sometimes that shadow puts on the disguise of light: ego.

Let go. Be content. You’re a masterpiece who messes up and has the weight of egocentric contracts crashing over your head. Ironically, get over yourself. You’re more than the shadow. You are light. Duality is the death of the self. Labels. Constructs. Us and them-ness. We are all one. Who are you and what is your self? Where is your light and what does it say?

Today’s a new day. Stop. Look within. Now look at your shadow. This divine dance is there once again only to remind you that your shadow isn’t your sin but is yourself. It’s the part of you that the ego wants to create in you. Your mistakes are not because of the shadow and they are not because of the light. The light only exposes what the ego tries to manifest and your shadow is exposed in its might. It all sings a mantra “in the beginning, God said let there be light”.
