We Are The Universe

My heart feels heavy today⁣

Thinking about how many beings out there who are deeply entrenched in non-consciousness.⁣

I used to think I need to earn the right to eat⁣

To breathe the same air as the revered ones⁣

And the ones I loved.⁣

I was there once before⁣

And sometimes I still find myself wandering to that abyss again -⁣

It is painful for me to write this even now.⁣

How do we begin to calcify and become so enclosed in our physical bodies,⁣

That of which we call reality?⁣
