A Cup of Tea (105)
Do not desire bliss
because that desire gets in the way.
Live life unchained to desire
and without an eye on a goal.
Live from moment to moment!
And don’t be afraid,
be free of fear
because there is nothing to lose –
and nothing to gain;
and the moment you realize this
the totality of life is attained.
But never approach the gates of life
as a beggar, never go begging,
for those gates never open to beggars!
