Rupert Spira – Song to Myself

  • by



I am
I have no words to express myself but
all words Express only me
I have no meaning
but impart meaning to
all that is perceived
I am without beginning and end
but all things begin and end in me
I have no name
but I’m called by all names
I have no name but I’m called by all names
I have no form but all form indicates me
I have no origin but am the origin of
all things I am without division but all
divisions exist in me
I exist by myself
I am the longing in sadness
and the longed for in all longing

I am the expecting
and the expected in all expectation
I am the restlessness of the restless
I am the peace of the peaceful

I am happiness itself
I cannot be
contemplated but I’m the object of all
I am imperceivable yet you
perceive only me
I am full but have nothing
I am empty but contain all
I give away everything
but I’m never diminished

I receive all
but never expand
I am everyone’s lover I shine
I speak but I’m silent
I move but I’m motionless
I see but cannot be seen
I hear but cannot be heard
I taste but cannot be tasted
I smell but cannot be smelled
I touch but cannot be touched

I smile
whatever appears appears in me
but I never appear
I am the silence in music
and the music in silence
I am concealed in the world but reveal
the world

I am the womb and the tomb of
all that exists
I offer and contain in one gesture like
an open bowl
I give myself unconditionally
to all things
I receive all things without choice
I am empty
I am the knowing in all that is known
I am the experiencing in all that is experienced
I am the allowing of all seeming things
I am pure sensitivity openness and availability
I am the Sun in the moon
I am the friendship of friends
I am knowing and unknowing
I am dark in the day and bright at night
I am gloominess

time borrows its
continuity from my eternity
space borrows its permanence from my infinity
[Music] 06:45
all colors borrow their light from my luminosity
all lovers borrow their affection from my love

all things borrow their existence from my being

all knowledge is a reflection of my infinite consciousness I am abundant

I am eclipsed by you but you are illuminated by me
I am yours and mine

I am the yes in the
know I am the now in the then I am the here in the there
I am the me in the you
I am the this into that
I am the always in the never

I am

I am the uncertainty of all things and
the certainty of uncertainty

I am the security of insecurity
I am the true in the false
I am the dignity in Pride
I am the reality of an illusion

I am the existence of all that exists
I am an open secret

I move but I am motionless motionless but I move
I am concealed in boredom but am not boring

I am veiled by doubt but I’m not myself in doubt
I live beneath fear
but are neither afraid nor frightening
I abide in myself

if you look in front I am behind
if you look behind I am in front

if you look above I am below
if you look below I am above

I hide myself and reveal myself in the same movement
I dance

I am imminent and transcendent
I am the bright self-luminous emptiness of the mirror
and the dancing colorful images that appear in it

I am the light in all experience

I break open the body and spread it across the world

I break open the world and hold it
dismembered in my heart I am pregnant
with the universe

I am the unknown in the known
and unknown in the unknown

I am the love in hatred
and the hope in despair

I am the same in all difference
and different in the same

I am the isness of things
and the am-ness of self

I am the substance of all thinking
but cannot be thought about

I am the reality of all feeling
but cannot be felt

I am the perceiving in all perception
but cannot be perceived

I cannot be approached but I’m always present

I cannot be known but know all things
I do not exist but I’m never absent

I am nowhere and everywhere
I am nothing and everything

I play

I am the love with which I am loved
I am the desire with which I am longed for

when you love me it is I that I’m loving you

I am the knowledge in ignorance I am the
answer in the question

I give myself and receive myself perpetually
I lend myself to all seeming things

I forget myself to taste the sweetness of longing
I divide myself to know the tenderness of a friendship

I hide myself for the pleasure of seeking

I look for myself for the fulfillment of finding
I find myself for the knowledge of happiness
I know myself for the joy of being

I am myself for no other reason

I become ugly for the sake of beauty
I become hostile for the sake of love

I am cruel for the sake of kindness

I am vast and bright
I am the heart of the heart and the voice of a child

I am wonder astonishment and delight

I live in the space between thoughts
but I play in your thinking
my abode is the moment between breaths
but I dance in your breathing

I am and space moved through me but I do not move through them
I am never experienced yet you experienced only me
I never repeat myself but I’m always the same

I am utterly vulnerable but cannot be harmed
I am made of nothing but cannot be destroyed

I have no defenses but am your refuge
I have no goal but am the fulfillment of every desire

I have no feeling but I’m open to all feelings
I have no thoughts but all thoughts are an image of me

I am kindness itself
I am imperturbable and am thus peace itself

I am without resistance and am thus happiness itself
I am one with all seeming things and am thus love itself

I shine in the mind as I
I shine in the heart as you

I shine in the world as it
but I only ever am and know myself alone

of the known I am the knower
in the known I am the knowing
as the knowing I know only knowing

I render all experience knowable
but I am not myself an experience
all names and forms are modulations of my nameless formless self

in ignorance I come and go in the world
in understanding the world comes and goes in me
in love all is me and I am all but for myself there is no I

I am neither Beyond nor within
I am the relationship in all relationships

I am the understanding in all meaning
I am the permanent in all impermanence
I am the experiencing in all experience

I am lost in the world
and the world is lost in me
I am abundant yet empty
empty yet overflow

I am homeless at home everywhere
I am helpless but help all things

I have no cares but I care
I have no desires but I long for your heart

I wait without waiting
I cannot be recognized but recognize myself in all things
I have no substance but am the substance of all things

I have no experience but am all experience

I depend on nothing but all things depend on me
I am never found but never lost

I am the embrace of lovers and the love in an embrace
I am your call and you are my echo

I sing

whenever you think of me it is I that I am thinking of you

I was not born but all are born of me

I do not die but all things die in me

I have no cause but cause all seeming things

I do not last in time but all time lasts in me

I am ordinary but extraordinary

I am closer than your breath
I am further than the Stars

I am intimate but impersonal
I am infinite

I am NOT something but not nothing
I am NOT somewhere but not know where

I am not me but am NOT other
I do not exist but I am not non-existent

I am desired and feared
I am longed for but avoided

how strange

I project the mind within myself
then I project the world within the mind
and I project the body within the world
then I dissolve the body back into the world

I dissolved the world back into the mind
and I dissolve the mind back into myself

I take the shape of thinking and seem to become a mind
I take the shape of sensing and seem to become a body
I take the shape of perceiving and seem to become a world
but always remain myself

I am and know
and love myself alone

my eternity appears as continuity in time to the mind
my infinity appears as permanence in space to the senses
but I know only my own eternal dimensionless being

existence is a movement of my breath

I become something
then nothing
then everything
but always remain myself

I can be separated from all things
but no thing can be separated from me

the world is my mirror and I am its lover

it is I that am revealed as peace and happiness
when names and forms are dissolved in me

it is upon me that all names and forms
are superimposed by mind and senses

I am transparent open empty and luminous

I am emptiness vibrating as the fullness of experience

I am fullness knowing itself in the mirror of emptiness

I take the shape of all seeming things without ever
being anything other than myself

in the world I am known as existence

in the self I am known as consciousness

all seeming things unknown by me
through me
as me

I am the original body in which the
physical body is suspended like a drop
of milk in water

I am the original mind in which the thinking mind drifts
like a breeze in the air

I am the am-ness of self and the isness of things
I welcome all things impartially into myself

I am the knowingness of consciousness
and the beingness of existence
the dissolution of all things in me
is their meaning purpose and fulfillment

to know an object is not to know me
to know me is not to know an object

I am the open empty luminous space of awareness
in which all experience appears
with which it is known and
out of which it is made

I am peaceful like the sky
I am open like the sea
I am empty like space
I am luminous like the Sun
I shine by myself

I am the substance and reality
of all seeming objects and selves

I am the light of pure knowing

turn towards me
and I will take you into my self

I play
I enjoy
I am
