Captive

But not a prisoner

 

Captivated

By his charms

And his wisdom

And his love

 

By that he held me captive

But I am no longer captive

 

He has freed me

From the illusion

He created

Just for me

 

He hid me

Within his creation

 

What was once hidden

Is no longer hidden

 

It is made manifest

By the illusion he created

 

The Mind

Art: Immaculate Conception by Giovanni Bapttista Tiepolo

When the spirit

Puts her foot

On the head

Of the serpent

Game over

 

The mind is

A worthy adversary

A worthy opponent

But no match

For the spirit

 

Spirit trumps mind

She created the mind

 

Overcome the mind

Do not see it

As an obstacle

But as a stepping stone
