84174 - Time is a motherland

N. Lygeros

You always think about the motherland
but without considering this notion
in depth.
You just see it as the country
in which you were born.
But what about your ancestors?
Do they count?
You say that you feel
emotionally linked
with your motherland
and it’s fine.
But if someone asks you
what about my motherland
what would you answer?
And for him
what would be your answer?
Would you stay on earth?
Would you think the sky?
But something is
much more easy.
Think Time
as a motherland
and you will find
the resolution of the paradox,
the solution of the Koan.
From that moment,
you will feel free.
Think about that
as a choice.
