The People Cry: 

Primitive sun in a darkened sky
marking time with every turn
what have you seen,
what have you heard,
all of our screams and cries?

What do you see
that we don’t see
deep in the darkened sky?

Do you see light
that we cannot,
do you see love denied?

Do you see hope
that we can’t see,
deep in the darkened sky?

To us your perspective is unknown,
we have dropped to depths of confusion,
desperately lost in a world of thought
we have completely forgotten our origin.

The Sun Replies:

I have seen the plight of your centuries,
observed your confusion and fear,
locked in your thoughts without answers,
unable to see a way clear.

You are born of the sea immortal
before all thoughts or ideas,
return to the sea eternal
to live in the stillness of Mind.

Mind is our Mother and Father,
we are all part of the whole
rest in its calm waters,
deep within your soul.

There you will gain perspective
undisturbed by humanities games,
bathed in true understanding,
inspired to create from the same.

You are the solutions and answers
to all your questions and goals,
trust within your Spirit,
drink from within your soul.
