There is no secret to accessing the Inner Self.
Only a rigid adherence to daily meditation, prayer, and reflection.
Sit upright in a semi-dark, quiet room, and consciously
still the conscious until calm transcends to a blue
radiance, enshrouding, ennobling, enhancing, humbling.
The Former Self diminishes and recedes
as the newer [and paradoxically older] Inner Self
nears that new and exciting plateau
that we intuitively know sets the stage
for a subsequent launch to another, higher;
and yet another higher still.
