the true Reality appears
when our minds are blunted and dull
our busy egos exhausted
and an unattended instant arises
in which all our conjecture
our fear and our greed
collapse in the stillness
of a selfless consciousness
that sees what it is
and is what it sees
such moments though rare
are plentiful enough and always near
and our gratitude should be strong enough
to be glad they appear at all...
