Wisdom And Power
Wisdom is silent awareness.
Power is talkative awareness.
Wisdom is ultimate power.
For power to become ultimate power,
it must surrender power.
The Buddha had to make this choice;
any Buddha has to make this choice.
Mara – the power in our mind – has its likes and dislikes.
This power cannot be subjugated
as that would give it a reality.
Mara loses its power only when it is recognised
within the space of compassion.
We have a choice:
worship power or worship wisdom.
