Joy of exertion

Dear Dharma friends,

I wrote this poem for gomde tonight.
Please post it on the sangha site if you find it relevant and appropriate, just thought it might be of some interest to someone other than just myself.
All good things to you all,
chris campau, Ry, Denmark.

Joy of exertion (for gomde)

to do the work that needs doing

is the aim of my practice.

I do not strive to do nothing at all.

as long as there is a need

i will rest only just enough,

the remainder spent

in the practice of joyous exertion.

making no promises.

enticing no enemies

other than ignorance

in practicing the precious dharma.
