Pain

Cultivate comfort and avoiding pain
The story of my ego-life

How can I alter this craving and self-clinging?

Are you finally suffering?
Come close
Feeling real pain!

In the depth of my practice, I leave the comfort zone

I am blessed
Being present
In a wave of splendour

Not on my own terms
No more elaboration of fantasy

In confrontation with frustration
I bow

Radical acceptance
All distinctions disappear

In genuine hardship
I become free

Fully saturated in pure light
