You Aren’t There Yet

No matter what planet you are on
Until silence is your prayer
And the ego is transcended
You aren’t there yet!

Stay on the Path
Do not search for instant gratification
Or you will end up with a wet dream
Lodged in your dry imagination

Where grossness abounds
True love can not be found
Sinister darkness is tolerated
Evil becomes a video game

Fathoming a plot to keep you pondering
Thinking you are fine..ok
Back to the garden metaphors..
The lighted way..the open door
There’s one direction to perfection

Think not of separation
Leave lust in the dust
Myriad experiences
Endless reincarnations

No matter what planet you are on
Until silence is your prayer
And the ego is transcended
You aren’t there yet!
