Scales fall away

At the lodge we watch fire tickle ribs of wood and close our eyes to pretend that traffic noise is ocean surf. And it becomes so.   –K.M.M.

As long as you cling to yourself

you will wander around for countless ages –

gaining nothing.

But the day the scales of ego fall from your eyes,

you will see that your wandering has no purpose.

Once freed from delusion of individuality,

the door will open to you within minutes.

–Hakim Abu-Al-Majd
