I slipped out of myself
and into my Self 
Who was waiting 
with arms open wide 
Tears of great Joy 
did flow down my face 
As I realised 
that SHe was inside 
There's nowhere to go 
and nothing to learn 
All that you seek
is now known 
By going within 
and leaving without 
The Truth of your Being
is shown 
The One you call God 
is your own Higher Self 
And is part of 
The One Over Soul 
You're all Divine Beings 
seeking your Selves 
And Love Is The Source
and the goal 
The Core of your Being 
is total Pure Love 
Love Is All That There Is 
This is true 
So be now aware 
as you find your true Self 
It's your Consciousness 
that's the real You
