There is No Enlightenment

There is no enlightenment
No illumination of darkness
For there was never any darkness

There is no Shangri-La, no sacred vortex,
No Utopia or a heaven over there
There is only right here, right now

Trying to stop desires
Is also a desire
Trying to stop judgments
Is judging against judgments
Trying to bestow unconditional love
Infers that love is conditional
And…the desire for peace causes unrest…

When Jesus, Buddha, God… look in the mirror
They see susej, ahddub, dog…
And their shackles fall off
They are freed to be meaningless

Seek and ye shall find
Is really seek and ye shall seek
But turn to look at who is seeking
And all is found
