Mind and Its Game

soon all will end
the retreat centre away from memory
back to the routine again
to the reality of living
but then again
which is more real
the mind or the world?

and it feels like leaving
one place of freedom
into the den of bondage
but then again
aren’t they relative?

like an inmate
incarcerated
for unknown years
pardoned and freed
the world now
becomes an unknown future
probably the cell
will be more familiar
save and secure.

and one
who has finally arrived
understood the mind
a cell
a mansion
a cave
a crowded place
even the world
all are but alike
the only difference
lies
in mind’s preference.

before, was once ignorance
now, a mind of wisdom

choose the world
for all glories
together with its opposites
or choose wisdom
for eternal freedom
and lasting peace.
