Ego-mind prefers to be met on its own terms,
Otherwise, how to maintain the advantage?
But what happens when it's confronted by an open heart,
A heart suddenly shining with natural wisdom?
Add an undisguised mind to this unshielded heart,
And ego-mind is left powerless, out of its depth.
Such a heart/mind stands at the threshold of a new life,
In readiness to welcome awakening's presence.
