Unconditional love – just wonderful!
But so far it has only reached
Our tongue, our thoughts
Not yet our heart…
Well, it is a beginning
Now deeds have to follow…
What else is needed?
An unconditional mind, a pure mind…
How often we take words
Of beauty in our mouth
Copy them even from others
But do we live up to them?
We use words like “unconditional love”
For this our mind needs to be pure
Crystal clear, no dirt, no spot in it
Can we really claim, our mind is pure?
Frankly, I can’t, for this we have to know
All the tricks of our mind
And it is a trick of our mind
To make us say: we are pure in our mind
If our mind says: I am a good person
I love unconditionally, I am free from violence
If we claim this from ourselves
We should be alarmed at once
Our mind takes a certain attitude
Plays with us, with our feelings
Even with our reasoning
Pressing the stamp of appearance on us
In the end we believe it
Do not control it
Stay in a state
Between clouds and light…
Can we really love unconditionally?…
Can our dress really stay clean
When working in a coal mine?
