That lying cheating moon –
She has no light of her own,
She takes the light from the sun, repackages it
And sends it down onto the earth for romantic people to swoon under!
The ego is like the moon;
The ego has no light of its own
It is repackaging the light of awareness.
Now, this is not a bad thing to do
But we do need to know that the light source is not the ego.
