unwitting makers

we are unwitting makers
building splendid worlds
on the echoes of our thoughts
and destroying our delight
with the grasping of our wanting.

Heaven’s Door“, Bob Dylan

Humans have unimaginable powers. Like gods, we have the potential to create with thought alone. It is our negativity, desires and habits that prevent us from growing our divine powers. Ironically these same barriers destroy the spontaneous pleasure that comes from just enjoying what we have.
