What is hurt but unrealized expectations.

What are expectations but the mind’s attachments.

What are the mind’s attachments but belief in the false concept of separation.

And what is separation but a lie – the biggest lieĀ ever believed.

Uncover the lie and find Truth peacefully waiting for you.

Then no more hurt.

Is it terrible that one prefers trees to buildings;

A dirt path to a smooth paved road; 

Climbing a mountain to traversing the plane; 

Silence to speaking; 

Both the sun and the rain; 

Holding your hands to walking alone; 

Sleeping to eating; 

Small villages to developed cities; 

Zen and praying; 

Us and me? 

Tell me, is that all so terrible?
