If I have a choice and ability and grace, what would I want to be?

I came across a beautiful poetry by Om Swami on his ‘about me‘ page.

This is what I want to be.

I am nowhere close but this is how I would honestly want to be able to describe myself.

Some day.

My achievement is not what I have,
My introduction is not what I do,
It is but who I am.
A nobody.

I sing, I laugh, I dance, I clap,
A speck of dust in the infinite creation,
A vast ocean in the tiny dew drop,
A Himalayan stream,
The still mountain.

I am That.

So are you.

Compassion is my religion and love, my only philosophy.
