Quieten your mind

 

QUIETEN YOUR MIND.
REFLECT. WATCH. NOTHING BINDS YOU.
YOU ARE FREE.

YOU ARE STRONG. YOU HAVE COME TO THE END.
FREE FROM PASSION AND DESIRE,
YOU HAVE STRIPPED THE THORNS FROM THE STEM.
THIS IS YOUR LAST BODY.

YOU ARE WISE. YOU ARE FREE FROM DESIRE
AND YOU UNDERSTAND WORDS AND THE STITCHING TOGETHER OF WORDS.
AND YOU WANT NOTHING.

VICTORY IS MINE, KNOWLEDGE IS MINE, AND ALL PURITY,
ALL SURRENDER.

I WANT NOTHING. I AM FREE.
I HAVE FOUND MY WAY.
WHOM SHALL I CALL TEACHER?

THE GIFT OF TRUTH IS BEYOND GIVING.
THE TASTE BEYOND SWEETNESS, THE JOY BEYOND JOY.
THE END OF DESIRE IS THE END OF SORROW.

IT IS NOT IRON THAT IMPRISONS YOU NOR ROPE NOR WOOD,
BUT THE PLEASURE YOU TAKE IN GOLD AND JEWELS, IN SONS AND WIVES.

SOFT FETTERS, YET THEY HOLD YOU DOWN.
CAN YOU SNAP THEM?

THERE ARE THOSE WHO CAN, WHO SURRENDER THE WORLD,
FORSAKE DESIRE, AND FOLLOW THE WAY.

O SLAVE OF DESIRE, FLOAT UPON THE STREAM.
LITTLE SPIDER, STICK TO YOUR WEB OR ELSE ABANDON YOUR SORROWS FOR THE WAY.

ABANDON YESTERDAY, AND TOMORROW, AND TODAY.
CROSS OVER TO THE FARTHER SHORE, BEYOND LIFE AND DEATH.

DO YOUR THOUGHTS TROUBLE YOU? DOES PASSION DISTURB YOU?
BEWARE OF THIRSTINESS LEST YOUR WISHES BECOME DESIRES
AND DESIRE BINDS YOU.
