Be Still and Know


I am the presence in the silence,

I am the light behind the mind,

Under the body, source of being,

I am the core and you the rind.


Still, in reflected light you see me,

Feel me in love that warms the heart,

Yet, with a chill, you always miss meó

Know I am One, and you a part.
