Hay letras e imágenes, que guardas como "oro en paño", porque sabes bien que lo que muestran tienen algo de sentido. Si se quiere experimentar un pedazo de libertad, ser un desierto, convertirte en un grano de arena, procurar al menos de vez en cuando serlo, te quita de un plumazo la importancia personal, y sin esa importancia, es muy cierto que ves y vives la vida con un grado de libertad real.
Being a Desert...
The desert is un-owned open space within which anybody can do anything they want. This is the level to which we are suppossed to developo. Being like the desert means that you do not care what people do to you, what people say to you, or what they do not do for you or say to you. It means being free in the deepest sense.
Our nature is usually the opposite of the desert. We are extremely and constantly concerned about what people do, say or even think about us. We are captive to almost every body, for tehir actions, words and even thought can influence our feelings and life. In order to develop spiritually we need to constantly work on becoming like the desert, feeling open and free like the desert. It is not an easy process, but one that not only greatly enables our development, but also brings to a level of equannimity and peace that cannot be reached any other way.
It is a process that takes constant focus and effort but one whose spiritual practical effect is inmense.
