507. My progress

There was a time

When I tried hard to avoid desires.

Now desires avoid me, my aspiration.


There was a time

When I tried hard to avoid doubts.

Now doubts avoid me, my faith.


There was a time

When I tried hard to avoid fear.

Now fear avoids me, my courage.


There was a time

When I tried hard to avoid temptation.

Now temptation avoids me, my liberation.
