I Am Not

I do not recognize myself . . .
I am neither Christian nor Jew,
Nor Magian, nor Muslim.
I am not of the East, nor the West,
Not of the land, nor the sea.
I am not from nature's mine,
Nor from the circling stars.
I am neither of wind nor fire.

I am not of India or China,
Not of Bulgaria, nor Saqsin;
I am not of this world nor the next,
Not of heaven or purgatory.
My place is the placeless,
My trace is the traceless.
It is not the body nor is it the soul,
For I belong to the soul of my love.
I have put duality away
And seen the two worlds as one.
