Tat Tvam Asi

O this rollicking stillness!
Can you feel the graceful jolt
of alignment with yourself?
The soft landing
in groundlessness
that makes the earth spin?

You have explored the horizons
of the void
and discovered a thousand
galaxies in an atom.

There is nowhere else to go
because you are always
here, in the beginning
where God cries like a baby,
and his word of creation
is "Ma!"

All the prophets were wrong,
there is no return.
You are already home.
Now you want to ask the Guru
for your money back?

You should be grateful
for the trick he played on you.
Wasn't he the one
who whispered, "Tat Tvam Asi?"
You Are That.

Here's the drunkenness:
there is no one to become.
