Arise my friend!
And contemplate the Real World
For I need your help as time is running out
If I have no companion here to help me,
My eyes will close
Then sleep will cast me out.
Arise dear heart! And see who truly lives
Behold the Real One illuminating everything
If we rise up together as true seekers
We can rouse ourselves when sleep comes lingering.
Stand up you subtle soul!
And observe the world’s true nature
Witness the universe, just a floating speck of dust
Bask in the Blessed Light, that gives it all a meaning
Wake from the nightmare of your self and of your lusts.
Rub your eyes, dear friend!
And stretch out your horizons,
And let’s link arms and sing for the One who only lives
As partners let us search for that special healer
Who will prescribe a pill which keeps us ever attentive.
Wake up my friend!
For life is rapidly passing,
And though we are engrossed, we are but sleepwalking in a dream
Rise up and be engulfed by the One and Only
Arise and realize that we exist through Him.
