Beyond Blue

Swami Abhishiktananda, an Indian pioneer in the dialog between Christianity and eastern religions wrote a poignant meditation about the process of letting go of the false ego in order to embrace the true self:

The Spirit blows where he will
he calls from within and from without
For the wise man
who has discovered his true Self
there is no longer forest or town
clothes or nakedness
or not-doing
He has the freedom of the Spirit
and through him
the Spirit works as he will
in this world
using equally
his silence and his speech
his solitude
and his presence in society
Having passed beyond
his own self
his own life
his own being and doing
he finds bliss and peace
in the Self alone
the only real Self
