You Are That

O this rollicking stillness!
Can you feel the graceful jolt
of alignment with yourself,
the soft landing in groundlessness
that makes the earth spin?
You have explored the farthest
limits of consciousness
and discovered there is nowhere
to go, because you are always
already here, at the beginning.
Therefor, there is no return:
all the prophets were wrong.
Now you want to ask the Guru
for your money back?
You should be grateful for
the trick he played on you.
Wasn't he the first one to whisper,
Tat Tvam Asi?
You Are That.
Here's the drunkenness:
there is no one to become.
