There Is a Beauty Within You #26 -- Why Be Less Than You Are?

Posted: Updated:
Print

Why not be the heart of Christ,
The compassion of Buddha,
And the dance of Rumi?

Pure awareness looking out through their eyes,
Was the very same now looking out through yours.
Pure awareness extending their hand to her,
Was the very same now extending your hand to him.

Why not be the diamond and the light,
The dew drop and the morning?
Why be less than you are?

Take off your shoes so you can dance.
Remove your hat so your hair can fall.
Pure awareness looking out through their eyes,
Was the very same now looking out through yours.
