are found guarding our gateway
to Oneness to Awareness and to Joy..
the ages have presented a gateway test:
sensations and thoughts are disguises
seeming to declare independence for
all appearing out there..
common sense rushes past the
gateway and fails the test..
yet fortunate are we with teachers
ancient and new to caution silence
then to return us to the gateway which
we had so quickly rushed through..
with only this pause our Oneness
restored and with Joy we know
and say: I am Aware...
