SADDHU

 
 
 
WHAT I LEARNED FROM THE SADDHU
 
 
 
There are some people not worth thinking about
 
As soon as I find myself thinking about SC or SP
I notice and label the thought ‘negative’
‘unproductive’
‘unlikely to bear fruit’
 
I examine how I feel:
terrible
       twisted and strained
 
I don’t like it
this self-inflicted pain
 
bad thoughts
 
but now they aren’t there
(Something kinder has called them off)
 
There is better and worse
