               Every story or fable about the Masters
                 misleads us, subtly.
               We see how they are
                 and translate to see ourselves, there.
               And, thus, when we imagine ourselves there,
                 we always see ourselves
                   through the eyes of others.
               It's again the difference between
                 being and trying to be.
               We must find the secret, within.
                 Utterly disconnected and free
                   of all imaginings, posings and motives.
               We must become the light of unity
                 unto ourselves,
                    born of ourselves.

            Letters wing their way to me,
              caresses on paper, friends in words.
            The warmth is there
              even as the weeks and months roll by.
            My mother, friend, lover,
              is imperishably and gently expressed.
            Like a hand that caresses
              or a look that tells.
            How good it is we remember...
              and how good it is
                 that 'we' survive.
