      Let Us See

      By Pawnee (Anonymous)
      (19th Century)

      English version by Daniel G. Brinton


      Let us see, is this real,
      Let us see, is this real,
      Let us see, is this real,
      This life I am living?
      Ye gods, who dwell everywhere,
      Let us see, is this real,
      This life I am living?


      from The Sky Clears: Poetry of the American Indians, Edited by A. Grove Day


      Unconscious people—and many remain unconscious, trapped in their egos throughout their lives—will quickly tell you who they are: their name, their occupation, their personal history, the shape or state of their body, and what-ever else they identify with. Others may appear to be more evolved because they think of themselves as an immortal soul or divine spirit. But do they really know themselves, or have they just added some spiritual-sounding concepts to the content of their mind? Knowing yourself goes far deeper than the adoption of a set of ideas or beliefs. Spiritual ideas and beliefs may at best be helpful pointers, but in themselves they rarely have the power to dislodge the more firmly established core concepts of who you think you are, which are part of the conditioning of the human mind. Knowing yourself deeply has nothing to do with whatever ideas are floating around in your mind. Knowing yourself is to be rooted in Being, instead of lost in your mind.

      Practicing without distraction,
      a ceaseless understanding was born.

      Looking out at the external objects of the six groups
      (eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, mind),
      I saw them to be the magical display of birthless mind.

      Looking in at the internal, intrinsic awareness of mind,
      there was the groundless, rootless nature of mind
      that is forever empty.

      Examining the attentive, aware mind in between,
      incidental thoughts free themselves.

      - Godrakpa Sonam Gyaltsen (1170-1279)

      "I" and "you" are but the lattices
      in the niches of a lamp
      through which the One Light shines.
      "I" and "you" are the veil
      between heaven and earth;
      lift this veil and you will see
      no longer the bonds of sects and creeds.
      When "I" and "you" do not exist
      what is mosque, what is the synagogue,
      what is the Temple of Fire?
