I searched for the great Love of my life, and it was life itself.
I searched for the illumination of God's presence, and it was in the twilight of my dog's gentle gaze.
I searched for deep meaning to the emptiness of the universe and existence, and I found stillness.
I searched for greater riches and abundance in worldly, tangible ways, and found the genuine gratitude of those I had helped.
I searched the essence of my true nature, and I found the expansion and contraction of the infinite universe; light, darkness, cold, heat, desire, longing, desperation, and beingness.
I searched for causality and found discriminating awareness and choice.
I searched deep into the eyes of evil and found the light of humanity, compassion, suffering and liberation.
I searched for union with 'other' and found myself.
I searched for answers, and learned to let go. Again, and again, and again...and found transcendence; grains of sand leaving the hourglass, only to return and fall again with only scant trace of remembrance, until the last grain returns to the whole, cycling into forever...
I stopped searching, and joy found ME.
