Whatever we think, say or do increases ego-mind's mass,
The more we get in the way, the more it fattens.
Whether fatter or thinner, it's all awakening's game,
Yet, once thinned out, we find new spaciousness.
Then each one is on their path of discovery,
Leading to the door of an inner garden.
Then outer and inner life gets connected,
Drawn together by the pull of awakening's presence.
