Awaken

The beginning of freedom
is the realization
that you are not
‘the thinker.’
The moment
you start
watching
the thinker,
a higher level
of consciousness
becomes activated.
You then begin
to realize
that there is
a vast real
of intelligence
beyond thought,
that thought
is only
a tiny aspect
of that intelligence.
You also realize
that all the things
that truly matter—
beauty, love,
creativity,
joy, inner peace—
arise from beyond
the mind.
You begin
to AWAKEN.
