The Flower Within You

Nirvana has to flower within you.
When you have dropped the mind with all its desire,
with all its ambitions, with all its program for achievements,
when you have dropped your whole mind full of greed ....
Whether the greed concerns money,
or the greed concerns enlightenment,
it does not make any difference.
Mind can go on changing from object to object.
But it remains the same mind full of greed.
The moment mind is completely dropped,
you suddenly find enlightenment is not a goal.
It is your self-nature.
Suddenly the lotus blossoms open their petals and you are full of fragrance.
