Back To Me

heart

After the golden age of my childhood I lost my way
A tiny sea shell swept up and cast out to the sea
Lost in the world only given rose colored glasses
I struggled in the darkness to find a way back to me

The mirror casts a reflection appeasing the eyes of judgement
Although what I saw was a dark hollow shell
The ego was my companion as I bathed in foolish pride
My heart locked away like a prisoner I didn’t know very well

Wearing shoes that will never fit I stumbled on every path
No matter what I had or accomplished the void still remained
Everything I filled it with turned to vapors
My rose colored glasses broken replaced with eyes of pain

Pleading in silence reciting words to my sad song to myself
I hear my weeping heart in the darkness heed to my calls
The void fills with infinite tear drops of love from my heart
I finally began to tear down my ego risen walls

I plant seeds of compassion in the soil of all I choose to do
Watered by the endless tears of my heart I can clearly see
The vision of my heart and my eyes are one in the same
I have finally found a way back to me

Ego Quote

” The Self is the internal abundance that can be realized at our will any time. It is capable of lifting us up from difficulties particularly during moments of stress, frustration, nervousness and duress. It has the power to nourish, nurture, absorb and inspire. All we need is to have faith and surrender our ego-self to the higher Self. The challenge we face, therefore, is not in allowing the Self to take charge but in surrendering ego-self. It is fear that keeps the ego intact, preventing its surrender. Our ego-self survives and feeds on our fears, miseries, doubts, compulsions, obsessions and cravings which are nothing but self-created but that appears real. With continuous use, they have become our mindset. We tend to derive solace in them even if the payoff is pain. ”

-Dhruva Bhargava

The ego is the most destructive force you have inside you that most are not aware of. Ego is tied to greed, selfishness, vanity, fear, paranoia just to name a few. It is never satisfied, a bottomless pit that can never be filled.
