Witness


What is desire?
What is frustration?
Where do they arise?
Are they composed of different energies?
What is fulfillment?
Of what energy is it composed?
Why does fulfillment not remain?
Where does it go?
Can you conduct this inquiry
even in your sleep?
How could you be bored or unsatisfied
when the blossom of a white camellia
has a thousand petals
and each one, veined with pink,
contains more worlds than the sky?
If you can answer each of these questions 
clearly, precisely, this instant,
then you are the Witness -
you are your Self.
