On Intrinsic Happiness

KeromeKerome Love, love is mysteryThe Continent Veteran

Reach down into yourself
Feel but not feeling the body
There you find an energy
And you discover that the mind
Is a pool of negativity and worry

Yet even this energy of happiness
Has seasons, of years and longer
And sometimes you will find
It is given over to sadness
And the lights dim

Then you wonder, was it something I did?
But you recall the dhamma
And let go of the feeling of happiness
And instead let it come and go
All things passing.

    Intrinsic Happiness On

    Leave shells and coils
    Break free
    Yoked to BO
    BOO and Noting ...

    Joy you are silent
    Heard above the herd
    Wander in Wonder

    Stretch upward
    Bend down
    Move on

    Love giving
