Takes your breath away
So you never forget it
Till meeting it again after stepping off a “cliff”
Beauty is what you first see when opening up your eyes at birth
And what you could continue seeing except for a long hazy sleep –
The sleep of your long-developed and cherished ego.
You spend your entire adult life attempting to wake back up –
To see, once again, what you first saw –
The naked beauty of the world.
It’s always there – right behind your eyelids –
Covering up your “true” eyes –
You can open them anytime you wish –
But only after giving up that hypnotic dreamworld.
Oh, God, let me see
Just like You see!
Let me be awake in the same way You’re awake –
Let me experience beauty every moment
Of my grateful/ungrateful life!
