When you meet another bird

When you meet another bird

You learn to let go

Wow I’m not that special

Just a wondering bird among many

Perched in this world-tree

~

When you meet another bird

You learn to let go

Your worries, attachments and cravings

Fall down like cold snow

As it touches the witnessing Earth

It becomes the cool stream

That flows and flows and flows

Oh this stream has flowed through

Rivers and mountains and forests

And so it shall continue to be

~

When you meet another bird

You learn to be Free

Dharma and Love are not mutually exclusive

Love is Freedom

Not the egocentric selfish cage

That imprisons the soul

So be Free little bird

Fly and go see the world

Experience it and suffer from it

To finally internalize Buddha’s Noble Truths

~

Oh Lord Buddha

When will I stop craving?

The bird sings

You have a long way to go

Perhaps

When you flow through

Enough lives and experiences and sufferings

You will let go

Let go of all

And dwell in Nothingness

  1. Hi! I really liked this one. I read most of your posts. I see that you are struggling and trying to make peace with yourself and find your way in this life. That’s part of life especially when one is young and tries to make sense of this time that we spend on this earth. I enjoy reading your posts. BTW way ever since I came back from China I long for good Chinese food! What do you recommend? Your family’s? Keep on writing! I promise to keep reading! Best regards, Flavia Soares
