THE REAL LIFE

One day you will wake up

knowing this life is not about you.

In fact, you are hardly even in it.

.

you will know,

“i am never alone”

because you have the power to be un-lonely

.

you will know,

“i am immortal”

as you survey a new sky, a new land,

the compassion that is this new world,

not as something in the shady recess of your imagination

but as something right in front of your eyes,

like a towering cypress tree.

.

Then you will know,

I am.
