“luminous Essence”

“Luminous Essence”

Having too little faith will turn one into a hopeless nihilist

But having an abundance of faith will attract others to your light

Don’t be like a dog chasing its tail

Or an office worker complaining day in and day out

Doing nothing to improve their lot—-

For behind all the world’s illusions lies the ultimate reality

At once transcendent and imminent

Filled to the brim with love

Beyond birth

Beyond death


Within everything

But like an old lamp

You have to first remove the layers of dust

To see its luminous essence.
