beingA Poem by alan khan
you wouldn't fault a tree for growing would you? wouldn't fault the rain for falling, wouldn't fault a bird for flying, wouldn't fault a baby for crying..
hunger and jealousy are petty emotions. rage and murder both tendencies as well. emotions and behaviors largely out of control, organic reactions separate from a soul.
we are forces of nature. our senses and physical being create the illusion of disconnection. we are all the infinity. chaotic and beautiful energy.
one should be at peace with what we've come to understand as flaws. for they are not flaws at all. they are simply the behavior that divide we from ourselves and others. do not think less of yourself, or less of another.
we will continue to grow. grow past it all perhaps. but that seems light years down the line. be patient and let growth take it's time.
enlightened beings too. they are not without their nature. they simply have slowly understood one practice to be true. exisiting, simply, as a human being is the most enlightened thing one can do.
