Thirteen

Hope is as dangerous as fear.

Gain is as hollow as loss.

Winning and losing are clever traps,

destined for despair.

Better to lose track of the score,

simply doing today

what asks to be done.


What does it mean that hope is as

dangerous as fear?

Hope and fear are both ghosts

that arise from identifying as the

separate self.

When we don't see the self as separate,

what do we have to lose?


Flow in the way things are.

Love the world as yourself,

so you can be trusted

to care for all things.
