Have you seen the inside?


*photograph taken by Joseph Malinga*

Have you got to know what is within you
That you so eagerly rush to get to know the other
Only to find that when the other can no longer fulfil you
You run away and drop the other
So quickly and cruelly?

Are you able to understand what is within you
That you so eagerly rush to understand the other
Only to find that when it is impossible to do so
You run away and drop the other
So quickly and cruelly?

Have you been able to stay present to what is within you
That you so eagerly rush to stay present to the other
Only to find that when the other does not respond and that makes you helpless
You run away and drop the other
So quickly and cruelly again?

Are you able to see and realise
With wisdom and compassion
What is within you first
Without eagerly rushing to the other
Only to find out that what blocks you from the other
Is only the blocks in yourself hence projecting onto the other
That makes you run away and drop the other
Quickly and cruelly, again and again?

Do you see now
That it has nothing to do with the other
But what is within you
What is within the so-called “you”
Is only what is in the mind, the mind, the mind…

And the outer world being an echo back to you,
The so-called “you”
Is only what is in the mind, the mind, the mind…
