The Shadow Cage: Poetry


Locked in the Shadow Cage
of the Self,
rivers of Thought seep into
a well of Ignorance,
where Perception is twisted 
into the desire for Unattainable Things

To be unenlightened is quite easy -
merely follow the trail of dangling carrorts
away from One's true Heart
and watch the chaos that ensues

One will eventually wake from this sleeping stupor
to a Life that is the direct opposite 
of what they truly needed

In order to develop
and maintain genuine Freedom,
one must have a deep understanding
of Cessation:

The pure state in which the Mind
births Itself within its own Silence,
having found the quiet place inside.
