Towards Equanimous Sobriety

A bipolar student
wasn’t sure he liked
being his more ‘sober’ self.

Perhaps he is
used to swinging
between highs and lows?

I advised that
there is no need
to cling to any self…

Since there is no fixed self
that stays high or low,
especially in mundane way.

Good to chant ‘Amituofo’ more,
to tune to the restful equanimity
of our Buddha-nature, and connect to Amituofo’s blessings too.
