Buddhism Can Tie Us In Knots
It can get very complicated 🙂
Once we learn how to tie our shoe laces,
the fingers automatically do it!
We don’t need to be over-mindful of the kinetics;
the point is for the shoes to stay on our feet.
The point of dharma is to stop feeling guilty about our confusion.
Our confusion is our path
to recognising our pure awareness.
The moment we recognise the feeling of guilt or confusion…
there is automatic awareness.
We don’t need to keep analysing it.
Upon recognition of guilt and confusion
ordinary people panic, and tie the knots even tighter.
The dharma teaches all the knots.
In pure awareness, all knots untie.
Once untied, leave it alone!
Over-analysing reties the knots.
when we untie ourselves.
the knots remain untied.
