Man, know thyself

Remain not just focused
On what lies behind you
Or what lies in front of you.
None of this can be compared to
What lies within you.

Infinite riches are all around you.
Open your eyes and behold.
Did you see the gold mines
Deep inside you, calling you.
Be the miner, go down to your mines
And substract nothing, simply extract everything.
You will find everything to make your life
Joyous, glorious, luxurious and luminous.

Man sometimes makes himself
And at other times unmakes himself.
His very thoughts, he uses to destroy himself.
If he makes use of positive thoughts,
He builds himself palaces of
Peace, prosperity, power and passion.

What matters is the application of thoughts.
Wrong application will lead you to hell
And the right application to heaven.
All this starts right from here.
Thoyghts are living entities, aren’t they?
Man, know thyself.
