A Different View On The Body And Mind - Poem by Han Min Ohn

Because of five colors our eyes are blind
Not clearing seeing what is actually behind
Because of five notes our ears are deaf
Not actually understanding what is being said
Because of five tastes our tongues are numb
Always craving for the tastiest, undermining the rest
In search of happiness our minds are always restless
Looking for more happiness afraid of being sad
In search of fame and fortune our actions err
As judgments being influenced by strong burning desires.

(In honor of Lao Tzu, Father of Taoism)

    A grand tribute to a Grand Father
    who I have followed the teachings of
    for some time now! You could say
    He adopted me on twitter!

    Smiling at you
