A Cup of Tea (122)
You long for the sun
and you will get it for sure,
but you have to have the courage to burn!
You can’t reach the light without dying,
for ego is darkness,
and besides, the sun isn’t anywhere outside
but is born within
when everything else there burns.
When the self is alight – that is the light.
The fear of dying is darkness,
the jump into death is the light.
Die, and know this!
Disappear, and you will find it.
That is why I say love is prayer –
it is the first lesson in death.
Regards to all.
