Adyashanti - Enlightenment is a Gamble

Enlightenment is a Gamble

by Adyashanti

AdyashantiTime to cash in your chips,
put your ideas and beliefs on the table.
See who has the better hand,
you or the Mystery that pervades you.
Time to scrape the mind’s [shit] off your shoes,
undo the laces
that hold your prison together
and dangle your toes into emptiness.

Once you’ve put everything
on the table;
once all of your currency is gone
and your pockets are full of air,
all you’ve got left to gamble with
is yourself.
Go ahead, climb up onto the velvet top
of the highest stakes table.
Place yourself as the bet,
Look God in the eyes
and finally
for once in your life
