Bardo Thodol

Bardo Thodol

Believe not in the higher self of thee
Collapse as the autumn bare-naked tree
Become a bystander to the evil that surrounds your melancholy day
Take careful note of the souls that have also gone astray
Continue to pleasure in life after everlasting life
There the final eternity is hidden in the mundane of everyday strife

Glance upon the wonder that you refer to as “I”
Inside you will experience the Creator’s omnipresent eye
The “now” is a space that suppresses the unwary soul
Enlightenment along your journey is the spirit’s intended goal
Perfection's answer is found among those who are dead and death defying
It will be too late when you resort to the clairvoyant’s unholy skrying.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
