IN A MOMENT OF
This is so tangled and intertwined like a skein of thread
that there is no handling it.
you may have the good Karma to hold an end of this,
but it is as hot as a boiling furnace
and as cold as a perpetual glacier.
Why haven't I known that this is just in front of my eyes
even though I have wandered in search of this for kalpas?
All of a sudden,
the Karma of ignorance melts down
in a moment of a breath.
Why not challenge it courageously with your whole body
and find the light of wisdom?
