      The Fool

      By nature my mind is
      empty.
      Even in sleep, I am awake.
      I think of things without thinking.

      All my impressions of the world
      Have dissolved.

      My desires have melted
      away.

      So what do I care for money
      Or the thieving senses,
      For friends or knowledge or holy books?

      Liberation,
      Bondage,
      What are they to me?

      What do I care for freedom?

      For I have known God,
      The infinite Self,
      The witness of all things.

      Without, a
      fool.
      Within, free of thought.

      I do as I please,
      And only those like me
      Understand my ways.
