The Song of Awareness(Poem)

Sit
Stand
Sleep
Doesn’t matter for the seer.

Breathe
In
Breathe
Out
Doesn’t matter for the Brahman(divine).

Scriptures
Sayings
Solitude
Doesn’t matter for the seen.

Mind
Meditations
Maya(Illusions)
Magic
Doesn’t matter for the mystic.

Prayers
Poems
Philosophies
Doesn’t matter for the pilgrimage.

Penance
Priests
Punditry
Doesn’t matter for the path.

Guru
Gods
Gestures
Doesn’t matter for the grace.

Faiths
Formulas
Frequencies
Doesn’t matter for the flowering.

Knots
Knowledge
Kindness
Doesn’t matter for the king.

Happiness
Habits
Heavens
Doesn’t matter for the hermitage.

Semen
Sacrifices
Sobriety
Doesn’t matter for the spirit.

Idolatry
Ideals
Identities
Doesn’t matter for the immortals.

Holy dips
Hippie trips
Hefty lips
Doesn’t matter for the hell.

Unlettered
Unwise
Unafraid
I ferry
into the kingdom
humming the lord’s name.
