You want to find light?
Look in the dark corners
behind the dark mirror.
You seek the eternal now?
See how your past makes your future and
your fear of the future has haunted your past.
You seek interbeing?
Learn to see otherness.
Let others be what they are
for their own reasons in their own way.
Form is just form.
Emptiness is just emptiness.
Enter the trap of life,
you will find many a friend in there
lighting matches in the darkness
and singing karaoke songs.
You want to get there?
When your spiritual vehicle is punctured
you sit by the roadside waiting for assistance…
what a beautiful blue sky
enfolds.
