ZAZEN: Ego and Mirror

Look at the true mirror,
and tell me what do you see.

If you see a mask of your ego,
just focus on it, deeply.

It will try to escape, to hide,
so be mindful and tie it.

Once it calms down, drill it
with insight, sharply.

Keep pushing, and eventually
you will get inside the mirror.

Then you will discover,
that the mask is empty.

You will see the strings,
that control the puppet.

Then , you will enjoy the game,
until the strings break down.

The mask of habitual tendencies,
will become your disguise.

You will be the mirror,
using the many masks.

You will become spontaneous,
and become a zen practitioner.

This is ZAZEN.
