When you are expansive, no matter
What the weather, you’re in an open,
Windy field with friends.
Many people travel to Syria and Iraq
And meet only hypocrites.
Others go all the way to India
And see just merchants buying and selling.
We always see the qualities
That are living in us.
Don’t keep doing what your animal-soul wants to do.
Your spirit needs to follow the changes happening
In the spacious place it knows about.
There, the scene is always new,
A clairvoyant river of picturing,
More beautiful than any on earth.
Purify your eyes, and see the pure world
Your life will fill with radiant forms.
See beyond phenomena,
And these difficult questions will dissolve
Into love within love.
Peace be with you, sir,
In your position of leadership.
