Isn't 'feeling lost' the first step to find oneself?
Lost - The first step to finding
One who is stuck in identifications doesn't feel lost
Being busy with one's feelings and thoughts
with all those properties collected during life
being occupied by owning body and soul
and having one's spirit on the right pedestal
this fellow human being indeed is being lost
There is no need to ask or doubt one's being
limited existence provides protective security
density of an established system causes laziness
why should one question or doubt one's state of being?
Only unbalanced people will query themselves
what's asked for is stability combined with worthy goals
giving sense and firmness to one's life. Right?
Or might there be a 'longing' behind all stagnation
a sensible impulse triggering lack of satisfaction
although one's life is nearly perfectly organized?
We use sneaky tricks to suppress inner evolution
nothing may touch fixed measurement of values
but manipulations or pills will not avoid one's move
towards an inbuilt vivid center of silence - yet unknown
So why not confront the fact that we are changing?
What is firmly tied to be hold on for ever will not last
not even our with lavish care protected personality
around we are turning as our most precious property
adding to it and enriching it with whatever is available
Why not letting go these old established habits?
Trusting that we will be carried to new fields of being
Where existence is lived because we are alive
capable to respond to what shows up confronting us
relating to other beings and things and to ourselves
responsible as alert humans, - present and aware
not pretending or lying to be able to survive, not hiding
gradually dropping games and role playing - growing
recognizing sovereignty - by gaining self knowledge
