Meditation allows the scales to fall
from the eyes of the mind
layer by layer.
The illusions are revealed
and the delusions lose their hold
as awareness creeps in.
Are you prepared
for the fabric of fabrication
to begin the Grand Unraveling?
Insight begins to reveal the Truth
beneath the dusty layers
Attachments begin to loosen.
The knots of emotions dissolve.
Fear no longer clings.
Sharp examination cuts the strings
as cloaks of unconsciousness are torn
and Awakening is born.
Are you ready?
