The Switch

It is as if there is a switch.
It can be On or Off.
When it is On,
There is awareness of awareness itself,
Of openness, and vital energy.
When it is Off, there is thought,
Time and egoic identifications.

The switch position changes states,
Sometimes by our intention
And at other times, by itself.

There is always Life,
Regardless of the state of the switch.

But when the switch is On
There is awareness of the presence
Of the consciousness that we are.
