The Instruction

There are always moments
when one feels empty and estranged.

Such moments are most desirable,
for it means the soul
has cast its moorings
and is sailing for distant places.

This is detachment—
when the old is over
and the new has not yet come.
If you are afraid, the state may be distressing,
but there is really nothing to be afraid of.

Remember the instruction:

Whatever you come across—
go beyond.
