Layers of Invisible Karma

The body is born seeded with natural desires.
Hunger, lust, and greed : mechanisms for survival of the species, establishing the mind squarely in the dimensions of space and time.

I constantly subdue them with a steady eye on the breath.

Society is born from programs in the mind.
Customs, class, identity.
From this grow artificial desires that seperate and define us from one another.

I cast it off like a bad dream, and cull identification with culture.

Family and friends horde us like a jewel.
To posses is to become possesed.

I cut ties within, and backtrack the path to liberation -
all beings share the same nature.

To clear sleeping karma
No one but this Self can be relied upon.

Where did Self come from?
To where it will return.
