THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Posted in Philosophy, Thoughts tagged , at 4:03 am by randallbutisingh

LIBERATION

No one can liberate you, for no one has bound you; You hold on to the nettle of worldly pleasures and you weep in pain. The kite is pursued by crows so long as it carries the fish in its beak; it twists and turns in the sky trying to dodge the crows that try to snatch the fish; tired at last, it drops the fish.  That moment it is free.  So give up attachment to the senses, then grief and worry can harass you no more.
