POEM: Now I Am Awake. Beautiful...♥

Now I Am Awake
written by Ashtavakra Gita
Translation : Thomas Byrom

I lived bewildered,
In illusion.
But now I am awake,
Flawless and serene,
Beyond the world.
From my light,
The body and the world arise.
So all things are mine,
Or nothing is.
Now I have given up
The body and the world,
I have a special gift.
I see the infinite Self.
As a wave,
Seething and foaming,
Is only water
So all creation,
Streaming out of the Self,
Is only the Self.
Consider a piece of cloth.
It is only threads!
So all creation,
When you look closely,
Is only the Self.
