Mistaking Body For Self

Orion Carloto

how do i perceive me as me, my soul,
not my body?

how do i love me, for my personality,
not for the way my body looks?

how do i accept this body
and stop it from being all i think about?

how do i take this brain
and wash it off all its exhausting habitual programs?

because it’s pulling me back,
it’s distracting me
from what’s real.

it’s making me more my ego than my soul.
it’s making me more confined than free.
it’s making me more shallow than unlimited.

i need to get this into my brain:
if this is where your attention and energy
are gonna be always,
then wave bye bye at peace and your dreams.
