Pride



Pride


The thing that man will hold on to

until the very end

is his pride.

One’s pride is the life he has lived until now

and so he is unwilling to let go of it.

He is unwilling to let go of it

even after he is dead.

Tears come to my eyes.

Man may look back on his life over and over again,

however no one else but he knows his experiences.

With the flow of time, man rears his mind –

a mind which he gains throughout his life

and lives fixed upon.

The Universe blames that mind;

it tells man to let go of that mind and live.

Life is a passing memory

in which anything and everything passes;

in which man sees what he sees as existence;

in which man thinks he is his self;

in which man does not realize

that attachments are burdens.

The will of the Universe is the Mind,

which is one that is absent of attachments.

Such is the will of the Universe.

The Mind is the Universe;

the Mind is the origin.

One who does not know this true will of the Universe

will live with his own distant and obscure mind.
