From the mind perspective
There is good and bad
And a personal self
As well as others.
From the perspective of presence/awareness
It’s a unific field of peace and stillness.
Contemplation of the basic assumptions
Reveals that the bases are loaded
With the belief that I am mortal
That there is something at stake.
Who am I truly?
What is at stake and for whom?
Remain with these questions
Without going into the labyrinth of thoughts and feelings.
