    Since you and your world are ineffable,
    what are you holding onto?

    Shatter the rigidity of mind with the view.

    Since the waves of all experiences
    are the ocean of awareness,
    Why are you selective?

    Let go of preferences
    in lucid meditation.

    Since all the movements of your activities
    are but the gesture of a single truth,
    What is spiritual and what is not?

    Enjoy the dance.

    Since the goal is ever present
    as the way of abiding,
    which is the path you're on,
    Where else could you go?

    Hopes and fears dissolve
    in wakeful luminosity.

    My precious teacher,

    Lama Drimed Norbu, from the book, Raindrops.

    If you meet a four legged lhama that can write poetry like this, please introduce me.

    They don't write it, they live it. Where do you think the Dalai gets his material from? Certainly not from corrupt humans.

    Hmm. I agree that Tibetan Buddhist Lamas live their awareness.

    I'm not a close student of the Dalai Lama, although I have met him and I have received teachings from him.
