You have tried it the hard way,
now try it the heart’s way,
the effortless way, for a while.
I have not come to burden you
but rather to free you of the notion
that you need to work hard to
awaken to the Self.
The Divine is not even a
breath away from you.
It can never be apart from you.
It is the core of your very Being.
