Human nature tends to circumscribe a line
Around which, walls are built
And the limits of thinking confined

This forms your world, apparently a sea in which to swim

Seekers find its shores, again and again
And see that it's a pond,
Standing in its shallows and stepping-out beyond

This requires work and explains why life has been described as
An apprenticeship to the Truth

The Truth, there are no walls or limits
But those that self-impose
This, the seeker comes to know

Your true nature, if a circle,
is one
whose centre is everywhere and circumference nowhere

Life, is the opportunity to be
Nothing less
