Seeing the "I" with Open Eyes

she felt lost in the city,
wondering, perhaps, if she had lost it all.

so, she went deep into nature,
deep into its most remote parts,
and enjoyed herself there.

the silence healed her --
and when she saw that her previous belief
about loss was just an illusion,
she burst into giggles.

because in that moment she realized
that losing everything wasn't so bad
because it meant that you also got to lose
silly things like the ego and all its illusions.

which was really quite a good thing, she thought,
because she was finally able to sit down to tea and crumpets
with her observer self without that annoying
little "me" getting in the way.
