Heart Clear And Transparent

Keep your heart clear and transparent
And you will never be bound.

A single disturbed thought, though,
Creates ten thousand distractions.

Let myriad things captivate you
And you’ll go further and further astray.

How painful to see people
All wrapped up in themselves.
