Random Thoughts

- – - by Jolene Starr

Random thoughts
or are they?

The Buddhists say let them go
just watch, like clouds passing in the sky

But maybe they contain some deeper secret
says my mind, something I need to know

Need to know? ask the Buddhists
is there anything you really need to know?

All that we really need to know
is our own True Nature

We don’t need to know what happened in the past
it only clutters and confuses

But the historians say that a past forgotten
is apt to be repeated. We must learn from the past

No, say the Buddhists
the only thing we need to remember

Is our own True Self
that expansive consciousness that has no beginning

and no end, encompassing all, everything
especially Joy and Peace and Love
