Ever-Present Self-Effulgent You Are
Ever-present Self-effulgent you are
Mind cannot know this, close nor far.
You try to think and make it true
But the thoughts can never lead to You.
They come they go
Sometimes fast sometimes show.
They form your personality
But thoughts have no truth or reality.
In deep sleep, you are still there
Even though your thoughts are nowhere.
So how then can you remain free from thinking,
When the mind’s job is to keep on linking?
The waking state forms with all events
In deep sleep, it dissolves all its contents.
When you know the ever-present Being
That being is Self-effulgent and it’s all you are seeing.
When the forever-free remains
You know this and never have any pain.
The thinker you are, not the changing mind’s state
The thinker, or Knower, is your pure Self-effulgent fate.
