For a reason
For a reason the Earth is round
for a reason there are cultures
for a reason there are countries and borders
and for a reason there is this Holy Guidance
for a reason the seasons change
for a reason we develop our minds properly
for a reason we have choices
and for a reason we also can discover our potential.
For reason coffee is black,
and for a reason cacao is bitter
For a reason I like my French pastries,
and for a reason there is also here the best butter.
For a reason I have a narrow(er) waist
and for a reason I can get away with drinking some wine
For a reason we have our separation
and for a reason I am celebrating my love’s blossoming.
For a reason we climb a tree and want to stay there
for a reason we may want to jump down
and may be even over.
For a reason we create grace in our lives
for a reason we love and we let go of the attachment
For a reason we have great Masters and I
have to tell you that this is great gift
for a reason.
For a reason we have family that is beyond blood
and for a reason we develop our connections
We call them Sanghas and dependant origination
a place where there is natural mind and compassion and joy
For a reason we love one another like this
and for a reason we grow up in synchronicity
where the efforts of our diligence are seen
for a reason in one life’s journey.
When the proper use of the mind is exhibited
in the present reality of what is happening
we understand the importance of our mind
For a reason, we trust its guidance.
The reason to listen to the mind
and the reason to listen to the teachings
Buddha Dharma is like this you see,
for a reason and hundreds more they have
all the answers that we are looking
for are there for a reason.
