Enlightenment is what one comes to know,
when he comes out from his false mind world
and he becomes Truth –
which happens to the extent of how much falseness he has discarded.
Truth emerges as much as one has been absolved of his sin and karma,
and what he comes to know in the moment of realization,
When the Bible tells us to believe with the heart,
and confess with the mouth,
it is speaking of enlightenment.
From the starting point of knowing nothing,
man will come to know and be enlightened of many things
along the way to becoming Truth.
The sounds of birds, the wind and water –
the sounds of nature – give my body and mind rest,
but man’s world is foul.
People living in the world find life a struggle,
but they do not know the reason behind their hardships
because they are all living inside their own minds.
A person with nowhere to go is always busy,
uselessly and endlessly busy,
no matter how far he goes and goes and goes.
He goes where his countless desires for achievement lead him,
but no matter how far he follows them, there is no final destination.
My heart is full of pity,
because he does not know that the true world
is where he must truly go.
