Make the mind a sea

Make the mind a sea
And see :
How its surface tosses in suffering
And the tormented waters dive deep
Searching intensely a place to rest in peace.

Make the mind a sea
And see :
How life crumbles into shards of dark doubts
Piling up in sinking meaningless heaps 
Looking desperately for a boat to float in hope.

Make the mind a sea
And see :
How the mind in the core becomes calm and cool,
Becomes the dense silence of the deep sea
And rests in the tranquil fold of the universal soul.

Make the mind a sea
And see :
How the enlightened life pulsating in rhythm
With the rolling waves of the open sea
Joins the cosmic dance of joy in ecstasy.

Make the mind a sea
And see :
How it becomes free.

I love the play on words, and the repetition also, makes this one pulsate with unique and clever introspection. Well done !!
