Please tell me what I can do about this
World I hold onto
I gave up the sewn clothes and wore a robe
But noticed one day that the cloth was well-woven,
So I bought some burlap, but I still
Throw it on elegantly over my shoulder.
I pulled back my sexual longings
And now I discover I am angry a lot.
I gave up anger and now I notice
That I am greedy.
I worked hard at dissolving the greed
And found that I am now proud of myself.
The mind wants to break it’s link with the world
But finds one more thing to hold onto.
