Know who you are

Know who you are

There is a world within you no one has ever seen,

A voice no one has ever heard, not even you.

And yet, unknown, you are your own seer, your own interpreter.

And so, with eyes and ears grown sharp for voice or sign, listen well.

Not to these words but to that inward voice, that impulse beating in your heart like a far wave.

Turn to that source and you will find what no one has ever found,

A ground within you that no one has ever seen

A world beyond the limits of your dream horizon.
