Self Surgery


overcoming being miserable 
or being far from 
the attacks of revulsion
when a moment's equanimity 
is considered actual happiness
on a bumpy ride called life,
the gateway to placidity and peace
seems to be ..balancing of mind 
or the objective observing 
of mind-matter interaction 
at the level of sensation sans blind reaction,
the insight to see things as it is 
for the mind is in constant touch with
the feelings of pains,heat,cold,stress..
at the subtler level of body
with pleasant feelings in body,
the mind reacting with clinging 
and unpleasant ones greeted with aversion! 
saying ' you are your own master'
paves the way for realizing the mantra
that everything changes in the world,
the people, situations, constantly
and looking things just as they are,
rather than a resorting to a blind reactionary spiral,
arrests mind malfunctioning!
if diseases,accidents need medical help
why the mental short circuits 
of anger,mood swings,insecurities,depression
be deprived of the mental help?
the antidote being..  
the mind surgery and dispassion! 
call it utilitarianism 
or a truce with life,
the road ahead
is to rewire 
and mind repair!
