The Greatest Fire


You want to know the swiftest path to enlightenment?
Jump into the crucible of intimate relationships,
and commit to staying when it gets heated,
and you feel burned, and you want to leave.
My friend, you need the fire if you want to be transformed.
The dross needs to be melted away
to purify the gold.
The ego fires burn bright,
but there is a warmer fire still,
built on the pyre of patience, forgiveness,
generosity, loyalty, unconditional love.
Gather this fuel for the greatest fire,
the fire of awakening.
