Looking Into the Heart


Look inside your own heart.
All of the books
all of the teachers
all of the experiences
prepare us for the simple moment
of looking fearlessly inwards
and finding the core of goodness
that has always lived there.
Do you want to awaken?
Look no further than
the events of your life.
Search for where you get stuck,
what provokes you to anger
what makes you afraid.
Look at what you want
and at what you don’t want.
Measure the difference
between how you act
when you are being watched
and the choices you make
when you think no one is looking.
Right now, in your possession,
is everything you need to awaken.
Sit, close your eyes.
Look into your heart.
The awakened one lives there.
