beyond the mind

Certain thoughts

Are like a pair

Of strong arms

Lifting me off

The meditation cushion.

At those times,

I let go deeper,

Becoming like water,

To flow beyond the mind.

Can you find peace?

Hint: It’s in the room where you find the origin of your thoughts.

Can you find the origin of your thoughts?

Close your eyes and go look.

Whenever confusion comes,

Let it keep going.

It is not the kind of thing to hold onto it, or to accommodate.
