Let go of your EGO And you will find GOD

For God do we all search

In temple, mosque, and church

Little do we know that the ego does hide

That very God that lives inside

We must let go of the ego

If God we must find

And for this, we must realize

The biggest enemy is the mind

But first, it is the ego

That keeps saying 'I' and 'me'

It dominates our life so much

That God we cannot see

God is not on a faraway planet

Nor an old man with a long white beard

God lives in the temple of our heart

Alas, his voice is not heard

The ego makes us deaf and blind

It stops us from the truth

And makes us pray to a statue and a saint

And a God with a snake and a flute

What does the ego do in fact?

It creates duality

It makes God different from us

And the truth we cannot see

The world has hundreds of religions

And thousands of Gods to whom we pray

The fact is we don't know who God is

And we don't even know what we say

As long as the ego dominates our life

Between God and us, it creates a veil

And though God is right here and now

To realize God, we fail

Because the ego causes ignorance

The truth we cannot see

We believe in the myth and superstition

And just be who we are told to be

The ego is my identity

The ego says, 'This is me'

Because I keep saying 'My' and 'Mine'

The God within, I don't see

The ego makes me suffer

Triple suffering with body and mind

It is the ego that makes me cry

With miseries of a different kind

'How dare you did not do it!'

This anger, revenge, and hate

It's the ego that makes us go around

And stops us from heaven's gate

Who is, where is, what is God?

The ego makes us juggle so much

It makes us search here and there

As our God, it tries to touch

But God, in reality, is within

God has no bone, nor skin

God is a Power that gives us life

In the trillions of cells within

What is birth, what is death?

Why did we come to earth?

God is the one that makes us live

God gives us the human birth

Without God, what are we?

Without the Soul, we are nothing

The body, in the end, returns to dust

It is God that is everything

Unless we go in search for the truth

Unless we start our quest

We will just believe the myth

And fail if we don't question and test

Life is like a spiritual puzzle

The pieces we must find

We must put together who we are

And not live like we are blind

The truth is simple, but we don't see it

After death, there is rebirth

It is our own actions, our Karma

That brings us back to earth

The Soul is a Power in us,

With the body and mind, just a part

The Mind and Ego is the one reborn

When God in us departs

But we do not realize this truth

Because the ego says, 'It's me'

The Soul, the God that is within

The blind ego does not see

The ego is always looking out

With the senses and the mind

It does not realize the self, that's us

Being a prisoner of the mind

We are not body, we are not mind

The truth is we are the Soul

Self-realization is the first step

That takes us to this goal

When 'we' realize, not body and mind

We are the Power that's the Soul

We also realize the God in all

That manifests as the whole

What stops us from such Realization?

What stops us from Liberation?

It is the ego that stops us from God A

nd from Divine Unification

Man minus Ego is God

If we remove the Ego, we will find

God plus Ego is Man

With Body, Ego, and Mind

So, we must let go of the ego

If God we must find

For as long as we think we are 'ME'

The journey we will rewind

God actually lives within us

His silent voice we do not hear

Because the ego and the mind

Make us live with a deaf ear

They make us live in this world and suffer

Believing all this is real

They hide the God that is within us

As in the world we twirl

God is not far away, God is near

God is in you and me

But as long as we believe we are the ego

God we cannot see

The very God we are looking for

Is right inside our heart

But the ego that is screaming day and night

Tears the truth apart

We just live and we just die

And God do we all seek

It is the ego that stops our climb

From scaling the spiritual peak

What is our life's ultimate goal?

To realize we are the Soul

We are the very God we seek

Not the ego that plays its role

The ego that lives saying,'It's me'

Makes us go round and round

It stops us from finding God within

As it fixes us to the ground

The truth is this and nothing else

God lives in us within

Let us stop going in search outside

And go within our skin

What stops us from going within

It is the ego and the mind

Though God is very near in us

Our Lord we never find

God never leaves us even for a moment

God is with us all the time

But the ego is craving for this and that

And so God we do not find

It's easy, all that we must do

Let go of the ego and mind

Then shining deep within

God we will find
