Self-inquiry is not about shedding one identity for another but dropping the heavy ideas we may carry around and present to the world. But then…. what do I know? πŸ˜„ Enjoy!

“Yourself” – written and read through Walter

See yourself not as a messenger
but as the message,
delivered through
actions arising
as responses
and not reactions

Think of yourself not as a teacher
but as a student,
taking tests
as they appear
in the classroom
of the world

Look on yourself not as a Guru
but as the very light
revealed by
the Guru’s pointings,
dispelling darkness
for those who feel lost

Consider yourself not as one who knows
but as one who knows nothing,
one who discovers Truth
fresh and new,
only ever here and now,
all possibilities allowed

Know yourself not as a person
but as an actor in this divine play,
capable of playing any role in this
comedic, romantic, tragic adventure,
no lines to memorize in this improv,
grateful for the gift of experience

Understand yourself not as an ‘other’
but as all others
expressing from
different vantage points
of only one shared being,
celebrating existence

  1. Love this! Right to the point,…… wonderful to read and contemplate, however not easy to put into practice!

  2. β€œno lines to memorize in this improv,”. This thought made me smile. Takes all the pressure off. Be your self. What do they say in improv? ” Yes, and….” The yes being the radical acceptance of what is appearing.
    Thanks again, Walter

  3. Solitary “brightness” gives strength to be alone and to be together. And ‘this’ becomes oh!, so entertaining. πŸŽ­πŸ“·πŸ“ΏπŸ–Œβœ’οΈπŸŒ¬ What is this?
