Best of Friends

The best of friends to one born
Are mindfulness and wisdom.
As fearless warriors they face
The thieves invading the mind,
Cutting through delusion, confusion,
Doubt, restless cycle of death and rebirth.
As final release imbibes the mind,
They bow down and rest themselves.
The heart, in its natural state of knowing,
Is truly wondrous:
Knowledge and understanding
Arise continuously, at all times,
Until the final breath.
One thus bound still to the world,
Yet unbound, sees thus:
Compassion for all beings,
Lovingkindness fills the heart,
Joy radiates as brilliant light,
From that body still in motion,
Yes inside, within the mind,
Equanimity, peace, and calm.
