The fruit of wisdom lies deep inside
the forest called mind,
behind the veils of its unconscious layers..
Deep inside the heart, it hangs in the
branches of the tree of love
that glitters with its aromatic flowers…
Thoughts, emotions, sensations and experiences
are the other trees in the forest…
As a hungry seeker, you begin to seek
that fruit of wisdom…
Along the way you eat
some fruits of pleasure that are sweet,
and some fruits of pain which are bitter..
You say, ‘not this!’, and move on, as you see
every tree and its fruits…
There are ups and downs on the way;
forbearing heat and cold, you keep seeking
the fruit of eternal wisdom!
At last, you taste it! and then,
only the taste remains…
