When mind's flare-ups are at their height,
The chance to deflate ego-mind is often greatest.
When mind overextends, overplays its hand,
There's a chance to break self-absorption's spell.
Then what a shock of insight could come into mind's mess,
Cutting through our psyche to its bare bones.
What would be revealed but what we truly have,
A heart open only to the Beloved, a mind knowing only Self exists.
