147. The avenue

Imperfect is the avenue
Of the blind mind.
Everybody knows it.
But who discards the mind?
No one.
Why?
Because
One day the mind
Will be transformed.

Perfect is the avenue
Of the illumining heart.
Everybody knows it.
But who pleads to be allowed
To stay with the heart?
No one.
Why?
Because
All are jealous of the heart's
Efficiency and sufficiency.
