Seeing Through

The path to happiness is the grand illusion.
Leave it and you gain eternal peace.

Any path, wherever it leads must take you astray,
For peace is not looking further than what is going on where you already are.

The illusory path is built on the dragon of fear and its child desire.
And as they dull your senses you set out and wander hurried and lost.

Shedding all ideas about what constitutes the “good life” is discomforting,
but only as long as you have not yet discovered the beauty of the present.

The rich texture of any given moment is the answer to all your existential questions.
As those vanish into oblivion, the true nature of things becomes apparent.

Fixing and attuning your sensory receptors is the most important task of your life.
And so the true path is the uncovering and coming to terms with your fears.

However, we are cowards and distraction is cheap.
Unfortunately, it has been like this always.

All fears are completely ungrounded and based on misunderstandings.
But to see this, the perspective of the universe has to be assumed.

The brave will venture in, realize and have their fears burnt.
The rest will forever keep wondering what existence is really about.
