SLOW REALIZATION

Slowly and tardily; I’m learning


Learning to finally let go!


Bound to the wheel of transient phenomena


Spinning unconsciously in the web of life


Is it not natural to be carried away?


In the warm comfort of a good life


The pleasant pride of possession  


The anger of unmet expectation


And the pain of sudden dissipation


Can anyone be blamed for this piquant attachment?


But slowly; the murky water clears


And slowly, the transcendent truth appears


All things are dependent; and all things change


Clinging to a selected few; is the only root of pain


Difficult it may be, to accept and fathom; but yet wholly true


There is no real I, sitting behind my viewing eyes


There is no lingering me; nor a persistent mine


Oh! striving mind! Once you see this as the transcendent truth


The conceptual wall of self, crumbles; the mirage of self- made pain ends


And the fountain of love and compassion, overflows and transcends


Slowly and tardily; I now understand this truth


Slowly and tardily I fill my pot with this eternal love


Slowly I aim for the boundless compassion


Slowly may I even yearn for this ultimate bliss!
