Abstruser Musings

A Journey into Self-Exploration



The Ferocious Lake

​You Beauty, why do you rage?

What keeps you going?

Anger? Passion? Determination?

Are you so wont to excel?

You shall never achieve much.

Why do you rage still?

You Beauty, where are you going?

You shall forever be entrapped,

By the bank.

You shall forever be rooted,

You Beauty, why do you shine?

People will come and go.

Some will find momentary bliss in you,

Some will defile you,

Others, indifferent. 

Why do you shine still?

Decades later, one day, there was chaos all over the monastery. Reason? 

They couldn’t find any cat anywhere in the whole village to bring to the bottom of the stairs and tie it to the sacred pole of wisdom.

A lot of superstitions stem out of perfectly logical incidents. It’s ok to follow rituals and customs set by our ancestors. However, when people stop asking “why”, they turn into blind followers.

“You don’t have to try so hard.You don’t have to give it all away.

You just have get up, get up, get up.

You don’t have to change a single thing”
