Presence

To be able to stay
Silent and still
Watching the mechanism
Of one’s own mind
As it projects its desires
Onto the world
As it seeks to choose
One over another
This over that
Right over wrong
Good over bad
Or bad over good

To be able to see this
Is the end of one’s lostness
In duality

This is the great freedom we seek
But it can only be discovered
When the seeking itself is seen

It is the work of a lifetime.
