Turn

One night just a moment
And so long ago
Great Buddha looked within
And knew that he was free

Take your seat under the Bodhi tree
When demons come
Look within to your own
Burning sun

Turn arrows to flowers
Touch your fingers to the earth
As your witness
And for the love of all
Be free

    • Demons can only reach so far. It’s our heart they’re after, and they worry when they see someone with a spiritual practice. That’s why Mara came after Siddhartha – he was getting too close to being free. He was getting beyond reach. You have felt this, I know. Courage, my devi.
