ไม่เป็นไร

ไม่เป็นไร
seems related
to faith
in rebirth
and a kammically
moral universe,
namely that,
given even
moderate effort
and craving
in life,
the universe
will eventually
conspire to
place one where
one should be.
of course,
not worrying
intentionally
means that
unconscious
and biological
circumstances
drive becoming,
like samsara
on auto-pilot.
even nibbana
requires craving
craving’s end.
for positive ends,
ไม่เป็นไร
still requires effort.

image of self

so the problem
is image of self
which I try
to deny
and others
to affirm;
although
this makes me
attractive
in a compassionate
sense,
it prevents me
from affirming
with which types
of people
it’s most healthy
for me
to surround myself;
people
manifest their minds
in their personal images;
i should
therefore
meditate
upon
my own image
for insight
into this
karmically
residual
self-image
which
i have come
to habitually negate;
my selflessness
should then be
both attractive
and directed
in the correct
direction.
