Chotto Matte

しばおま

It is said that

Desire leads to suffering

but that is only half the picture.

Denial of desire

unfulfilled

is

its own suffering.

There is no hurry…

You must know desire

in order to rise above it.

Enlightenment

comes at its own pace

like the

Spring Rains

and the fish that swim

with the tide.

The snake must grow

before it can shed its

skin.

There is no hurry.

The dog chases the deer

because the deer runs.

Matte Kudasai…

Chotto Matte…

You will not

miss your turn.

There is no attainment

with nothing to attain.

No hurry

with no finish line

to cross.

しばおま
