Finding Myself….

Thought I’d better find myself…
Where am I?
Not in my head;
Could see my thoughts but they weren’t me.

I think therefore I am?
Nah, I am therefore I think more like;
In my body?
Not there either.

My body breathes;
Heart pumps;
Organs function;
Not me doing any of that.

My name?
Parents gave it to me;
Work, hobbies?
Just things I do.

Sits still, scratches head;
Then who the bloody hell am I?
Looks into the dogs eyes….
Ah…. there I am…

Everywhere but where I thought….

Standard

    I have heard many talks in Buddhism on emptiness, and without sounding overly sentimental….I feel all those years of teachings were summed up for me in those couple of lines you’ve shared there – looking into your dogs eyes, there you are, everywhere but where you thought. Thank you for sharing.
