The Ties That Bind

"Mother"
11" Savaged Sculpture

~

A philosophical lullaby:

The base of suffering is Attachment;
The root of attachment is Ego;
The seed of ego is Identity;
The origin of identity is Self;
The conception of self is I;
The birth of I is Consciousness;
The reality of consciousness is One.

And so saying,

Know that the enigma of Truth
is wrapped up with the concept of Mother,

She is the tie that binds 

with a rope leading back
to the Ultimate Reality:
Who You Really Are

And once You reconcile 

the Shadow Side aspect 
of Who You Are,
the Path becomes Yours.
