    DETACHMENT

    I left on a quest, a spiritual undertaking;
    on a desperate search for detachment
    from the drive of lust, money, luxury, power,
    the senseless need to always win...
    I stood looking at the mighty river
    river of dreams, river of choices... hoping
    a friend, a great Master, would hand me a bag of spiritual candy
    to make this a pleasant journey; a happy time,
    but all I found was a bag of stones left there for me...
    In great disappointment, I wondered what this meant;
    I knew I must carry this bag of stones, of that I had no doubt,
    but what if I became too weary to walk with this burden?
    what if I failed in this strange task?

    From within the swirling waters a voice spoke to my trouble soul:
    "The friend whom you seek could well have left you
    a bag of good wishes, promises, love, and many a false hope
    of nothing but smooth walks, without hills or valleys:
    as the world of man ‘gives’ of it’s lies to unsuspecting seekers...
    but in truth, being a friend and Master, he left instead
    this bag of plain, simple, unassuming stones gently taken from me:
    “Now, what should you do with this priceless gift?
    Every time you come near a brook, lake, river, ocean,
    gently, deliberately throw in a stone from the bag,
    never looking where it lands,
    just knowing that the water is blessed by the source;
    knowing the Creator will receive this gift
    and transmute it into love for you
    for each stone represents an attachment in 3D,
    and when every stone is gone you will feel lighter.
    Your path will now be joyful and clear.”
