Whatever ego-mind may approve is often as quickly disapproved of,
But awakening-self simultaneously both accepts and rejects .
For can it not accept ego-mind exactly as it is,
Yet also see that state as completely untenable?
Can't it feel remembrance of the Beloved is most complete when no reward is in sight,
And still claim to know awakening's treasure is ever at hand?
Such actions may remain contradictions to ego-mind,
Yet pose no mystery to awakening hearts.
