Rama's Mahasamadhi, 2001



Woulda, coulda, shoulda.
When we are warriors,
these things don't matter.

I want, I need, I avoid.
When we are tantric,
These things don't matter.

Look what they've done to me! Look what I've done!
When we lose our sense of self-importance,
These things don't matter.

Enlightenment is all around and inside of us.
The fact that Rama realized it in this world is of no importance.
The fact that we can realize it in this moment is.

As Janice Joplin said,
"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose."
Lose yourself in this world and you will be free.

This is our finest moment if we make it so.
Our best days are yet to come.
Be happy. Begin again.
