wednesday wisdom

winding streets, sacred cows in Varanasi (aka Benares), India

I laugh when I hear that the fish
in the water is thirsty.
You wander restlessly from forest
to forest while the Reality
is within your own dwelling.
The truth is here! Go where you will–
to Benares or to Mathura;
until you have found God
in your own soul, the whole world
will seem meaningless to you.
