Lost Dog

“Self is in the thoughts sir…” The man answered the abbot’s question.  He was not enlightened, but he like many others have seen the truth.

However, in the weeks past, his fears had settled in… telling him that he would now be traveling alone, selfless, without soul and a hole in his heart.  Heading for nothingness… he would miss his long lost companion and the experiences of joys & excitements they could share together.  He felt the loss, the boredom and eventually became adrift and agitated.  He finally reached for that self again.

“You are searching for the rabid dog you once unleashed and threw away…” said the temple’s abbot.  “You mind has seen the truth, but hasn’t accepted it yet.”
