After reading Prajna – The Buddhist Path of Wisdom, by Dr. Ed Bastian

Guess what! Wisdom will not
arrive at your door
within 48 hours.
No door dash driver
can deliver
what you want to know.
Searching to
understand wisdom
I find phrases like
“after years of practice…”
“Over time…”
Used to whizzing through
your life at 70 mph
(you can’t even
slow down enough
to spell it out)
the pace of wisdom
will infuriate you
time to get over yourself
there is no
Candyland shortcut
to wisdom
sit your butt
on the cushion
breathe in and out
until you dissolve
into emptiness
