RIDING A COW
We are said to be looking for a cow
while riding it.
What on earth does this mean?
We are being deluded with our eyes open,
for me, being with it all the time amid our movements,
can't see it.
Only when we can see what never changes amid change
will we be able to run our household.
Until then we should keep a close observation.
While we, riding a cow, are looking for it,
we realize our fault all of a sudden.
