An Unexamined Thought

25 Mar 2015 life

An unexamined thought
  is like a knife in a drawer,
    an unseen weapon
     that can grow
       into poison.

It can slip
  into the soup
    of our consciousness
unnoticed,
  unless,
    in mindfulness,
we recognize
  its bitter taste.

In the light of our awareness,
  the mind is our greatest gift,
    but, when we sleepwalk
     through our own darkness,
       it can be our undoing.
