THE FLIGHT OF THE GARUDA
Then, all you lovers, think of the beautiful man or woman in your heart. You gluttons, consider the food you crave--meat, cake, or fruit. You strutting peacocks, recall and dwell on the clothes you like to wear. You avaricious traders, think about the form of wealth you desire--horses, jewelry, or cash. Carefully considering these matters, allow desire to arise, and when it arises look directly at its essence, at the greedy and lustful self. Then discover firstly where it comes from, secondly where it is now, and finally where it goes to. Look carefully for its color and shape, and any other characteristics.
This vision of your desire is ultimately empty and ungraspable. Do not reject it! It is discriminating awareness.
