We Have To Admit To Being Fools …
before we can be masters
Thinking we are already masters,
we merely dress up our reality.
It’s what humans do; we maintain appearances.
From a spiritual point of view,
this is foolish – but understandable – as we have all been fooled.
Our path is liberating our attachment.
Spiritual practice is release from playing
the serious fool, the clever fool, the charismatic fool.
Liberation is the relief of stepping out of the limelight.
Dropping the fool, we become the jester:
one who walks on the edge,
knowing that the last laugh is reserved for death.
Being amused by the illusion,
we can no longer be fooled,
as the illusion liberates.
