Eyes closed, as if deep in a wakeful slumber
Here I stand in tune with everything;
This feeling – so subtle, so soft and gentle
Yet absolute and whole.
Eyes opened, gently receiving the Light
I looked around me in a wakeful daze;
The trees, the rocks, the ground, the skies, the mountains and morning mists
Feeling so utterly puny, thinking if I even existed
“Am I of the bounded or unbounded?”, I asked myself in a drunken state of awe
The boundaries within me, broken,
My sense of proximity, shattered.
Eyes closed again, hands gently pressed against my chest
There I found a deep-seated longing within;
The desire of wanting to shed this exclusivity and to be included
Into everything and nothing all at once
Just like a drop of water, longing to merge once more with the ocean.
