Beyond Intellect [Poem]

Don’t let yourself be sharp,
By the cutting coldness of your intellect
That you forget the heart that lives in you
That you forget the luminosity.
For when we recognize the nature of mind
We receive everything we can,
Until then we are only
Spinning endlessly in circles
Like a dog chasing its tail
But
When we really open to compassionate Love
When we really see the Earth as our teacher
When we understand that beauty and
pleasure and sensuality
are the ways of the Tantras
Then we can find another measure
Of the healing that lives beyond.
Tashi Delek 17
Intentions that are in the land
The prayers that are so deep
More than you will ever know
For the wisdom I carry is one
And the Path of the One Dharma is Holy,
I do not tolerate your judgements
And your ways of war and of coldness
I do not speak and take on this time
In which you have so eloquently entrapped me
I stand for compassionate Love
and there are many ways
To make you understand
One Love and the Buddha Dharma
Rev. Dr. K. Sonan Wangmo
