Previous Poem, Nothing belongs to you!  It is all like the breeze Part Four, You wear your mind like you wear your dress Next Poem, The doer must pay for his actions.  This is karma

You wear your mind like you wear your dress.

Mind is that which is desire, is past, is graveyard,

is name and form, is transience, is describable.

“I” is a wave, is mind, is samsara, is desire,

is arrogance, is wickedness, is confusion,

is snake, is not rope, and is all of manifestation.

Identifying yourself with the “I”

is identifying yourself with past and future.

Cling to it and you will suffer and be stuck in it.

Abandon it: Liberation!

The creation of hells is the mind turned outward

saying “I am the body.”

The creation of heavens is the mind turned inward

knowing “The kingdom of heaven is Within.”

Mind turned inward

will see its Source and then never return

because you stay with what you love most.
