I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.

I am the sweet uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft starts that shine at night.

I am with you still in each new dawn.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Beyond mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic,
that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea -
and there is no experiment up to now
that has found any center in the brain
which corresponds to awareness.

to make you aware of all that is "mind"
and disidentify yourself from it.
That very separation is the
greatest revolution that can happen to man.

which makes you more joyous, fulfills you,
gives you contentment, makes your life a work of art, a beauty.
But this is possible only if the master in you is awake.
