The Silence Between the Birds

The Silence Between the Birds

Watch your thoughts closely              

From where did they come             
The ego and the mind                
Working together as one
                                    
This isn’t who we are                            
Or what we should believe                       The negative thoughts                                 The ego wanting to deceive

        
Step back for one moment                      And watch them from afar            
See the pain and fear dissolve               Those thoughts not who we are

For we are infinite beings                
Find stillness from within                 
The mind stops us from seeing        
It can change the world we’re in            We are not our thoughts                 
Nor are we formed                                   From the ego and the mind                
Our reality is torn                                  Watch the thoughts that come    
And recognize why they are there     
But be aware, they’re ego born               For your life they do not care

But once you see them for all they are They have no power over you       
Watch them come and watch them go   With practice they’ll come few

You’re waking up now to beauty              To the things you’ve never heard               The waterfall, the mountains             
The silence between the birds
