When no longer my ‘I’ is raging

September 17, 2012

Each time I try to make myself bigger, I get tinier;
Each time I want to make up for lost time, I lose it;
Each moment I delay embracing Eternity, I fall backwards;
Each morsel of life that I wish to rip and chew fattens only my ego.
Releasing my soul to the Soul and my heart to the Heart,
My will returns to the Will which first willed it to be;
And then when no longer my ‘I’ is raging, I find All resting quietly in me.
