Day 27 of NaPoWriMo

Two more poems for today.

The Mystery

I think, therefore I am, it is said.
Yet what is this that I am?
For I think as I am an ego,
And yet, I AM is the greater Self.
So, as the Self does think
Then it is therefore an ego, the Ego.
So the conflict between the Self and the Ego
Is silly, just as difference of viewpoint.
So no difference at all.
Just as ice and water are the same,
It all depends on your perception.
So the Self that thinks and feels
Is the Ego; as I think
Therefore I am because I AM.


The Solution

Two sides of the same coin,
The ego and the self,
High and low,
Each defining the other
As the way of defining the one.
Yet the self is larger,
The ego more focused and local.
Still just as heart and mind
And stomach can’t exist without the others,
The self and ego need each other,
To function,
To rise,
And to fall.
Liberation and Manifestation,
Two sides of the same coin,
A cosmic circuit,
Makes us human, fully human,
Yet carrying the seed of the divine within.
