Clean The Mind

When soot blackens
the chimney of a lamp,
who would waste time yelling
at the flame for not shining
brightly enough?

Patiently clean the impurities
          from the glass of your mind,
the brilliance and beauty of
          your true nature
will illumine all around you
with the light of Love.
