The story of my ego-life
Cultivate comfort and avoiding pain

How can I alter this graving and self-clinging?

Are you finally suffering?
That is the key
Feeling real pain!

In the depth of my practice I leave the comfort zone

I am blessed
A wave of splendour

Not on my own terms
In confrontation with frustration
I bow
Radical acceptance

In genuine hardship
I become free
