“To let go of the fear and anger which imprisons my heart,
To relinquish all childish expectations and live joyfully in the world as it is —
not as I wish or imagine it to be,
To be free of the always craven and ever-craving ego,
To be released from the endless hungers of the body,
To see God in others,
To see God in everything,
To die without death and merge my consciousness
into the cosmic sea of bliss from which I came …
This is my soul’s journey.”
The World It Softly Lulls by Hiatus Kaiyote
From the album Tawk Tomahawk
death of the old // birth of the new
eyes closed, one open.
amidst a sea of tranquillity,
soles stroked by rippled waves.
seek nothing, gain all.
less thought, subtle awareness
here & now, perfection, present.
