I lie down for a nap.
Thoughts are racing in my head.
They fight each other
One must emerge as the winner-
The most powerful thought-
The one endowed with most reason…
The fight in mind should settle it
Once and for all.
I shut my eyes
I consciously step away from the arena.
Their argument becomes dimmer as I walk away…
When the noises become faint
I slip into bliss…
The thoughts are now a memory.
Time transported me into the future.
Having left thought behind
I feel older, wiser
This is the way to grow:
This is the way to win:
Yes, thoughts will enter
And claim your space
Allow them to fight out their dialectical destiny.
The attainment you seek
Doesn’t depend on a thought’s victory.
