Come to Know Yourself


Come to know yourself
with gentle, honest awareness.
Close your eyes,
look inwards–
what do you see?
Great monsters of thought
lurking there in the darkness,
ready to pounce,
to engulf your joy
in imagined terror.
Breathe now,
and you’ll see
the thought monsters
as a good strong wind
blows away the clouds
obscuring the sun.
Take heart.
There is nothing to fear within–
no monsters–
only clouds obscuring
your precious light.
Breathe the clouds away,
come to know yourself
with gentle, honest awareness.
