As the Person I Am Not
As the person I am not I am like a block of wood burning in the fire of your love You incinerate me with the rapid and intense graceful flames of your love You incarcerate me too in the blissful prison of your love Invisible chains of knowing bind me to you who are everything that is A life sentence is not enough I am uplifted and purified by you an ember glowing on its own it fuel consumed soon to be ash Dancing in the graceful lightness of your your love I die over and over to the person I am not
For years I have happily and diligently responded to communications on the topic of Self realization. Since the publication of my book, “How to Attain Enlightenment”— currently in its third printing —and the success of this website, the volume of emails has increased considerably. Unfortunately, owing to a busy schedule of teaching and writing, I am no longer able to answer all the emails I receive in a timely fashion. However, my wife, who is also a teacher, and several well-qualified teachers we have endorsed are available to answer emails on my behalf. I encourage you to send them your questions.
