The light of wisdom
To the light of wisdom,
appearances are merely projections.
Attachment to appearances
creates a mistaken reality,
dulling the light,
and causing a rope to appear as a snake.
Attachment, like Desire,
creates more thirst, more projections.
Appearances, good or bad,
dis-appear in the clear light of wisdom,
on an individual level.
On a collective level,
appearances are collective projections.
This collective dullness compounds itself,
when the collective gossips.
A negative world is created.
The individual light of wisdom,
through practice and understanding,
passes on the light, candle to candle,
gradually illuminating the collective.
We are all individuals of light.
More or less…!
