It’s What We Are

Beneath the seething sea of
feelings, sense impressions,
thoughts and interactions
the ground of being rests.

Like bedrock on the ocean
floor it forms a container
for the psyche.  It’s the source
of the “something more” we’re
always looking for.

It’s here, not somewhere different.
It’s now, not tomorrow or next
year.  Sinking into its support,
we find ourselves uplifted.

The ground of being isn’t
a goal we need to seek-
in truth it’s what we are
