Care Two Hoots for the Mind
Lives of people like Ramana Maharshi
Remind us we do not need a mind
To transact the daily business of life
A far superior intelligence resides
In the life force that pervades every cell
That makes sure the body functions and acts
In all circumstances that it encounters
Far better than when the mind interferes
Without a hitch, with love and compassion.
Life is a game, you see.
He that deludes us
Is the one who liberates us
First he blindfolds us
And makes us play
Till at long last
We grow tired of the game
When he takes pity on us
And lets us know
How to remove the blindfold
And opt out of the game.
