Know you’re Self not body, know that is certain!In this Realization, there’s no cause to leave home,You can strive in the city, there’s no need to roam.To change style of life would all be in vain,For mind remains with you, until it is slain.Demonic ghost ego, source and fabric of thought,Create body and world, whereby we are caught.Change of place, never changed the way we behave,Whether living at home, in a forest or cave.There are two ways by which our bonds may be freed:Either ask “to whom is this strange fate decreed?”Or surrender false “me” to be then stricken down,So praying intensely for “my will” to cease,We leave it to grace, to grant us release.—Alan Jacobs, “Know You’re Self”
