You have not known what you are

Loving these lines from Walt Whitman. Perhaps if more people really did know who and what they were….instead of being enmeshed in who they think they are (in case you haven’t twigged yet – you are not who you think you are; never have been, never will be. If you were merely what you thought you were, that would imply you were only a thought!). You, we, are so much more. I don’t know about you but I’m tired of sleep-walking through life on auto-pilot with my eyes closed. It’s time to wake up. Wake up now…

For, in the words of Whitman:

O I could sing such grandeurs and glories about you!
You have not known what you are,
you have slumber’d upon yourself all your life,
Your eyelids have been the same as closed most of the time…

Whoever you are! Claim your own at any hazard!
These shows of the East and West are tame compared to you,
These immense meadows, these interminable rivers, you are
Immense and immeasurable as they…
