Freedom From Suffering


(dedicated to Andrea)

(inspired by Eckhart Tolle)

Did you know, that nothing can touch you any more?

Only beauty.


Future does not exist in the future.

We cannot get there, we can only be there.


The host of the very woe we sense

exists only in moments when we are not wholly present.


We maybe ten thousand years old

but it’s fatuous

to let the past wounds cast any more shadows!


Pain is a word to the wise of joyful delights

and it is

all we need to learn from that host body!


Yet, only  awareness -


could heighten your divinity

if you care to listen closely.


No god is mightier than yourself.


It’s a little scary, isn’t it?


Not really.
