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



We use all things created

In order to see the truth

They can become obstacles to us

Or stepping stones


When the foot of the divine

Steps on the head of the serpent

Then all obstacles are overcome

And the truth alone stands
