This poem by Robert Adams came to me as a gift from my friend, Amanda and I wanted to share it with you. It says it all.
Love and blessings, Bridget
There is really nothing to say. Words are superfluous.
The only reason I use words is so you can detect the silence in the words.
Silence is truth. You cannot explain truth in words.
The words become meaningless, redundant.
The truth comes to you of its own free will
When you prepare yourself through deep surrender to your Self.
As long as you are holding on to anything,
The Reality will evade you.
The Reality only comes when you give up yourself, when you give up your ego,
When you give up your needs, your wants, trying to make something happen, desires,
When you give up trying to become self-realized,
When you just give up.
Then something really wonderful happens.
You begin to expand,
Not your body, but the consciousness which you are.
You become all pervading, Absolute Reality.
It happens by itself.
