The Fourth Layer - Who we actually are....

Composed of elements including the earth,
Oft this body gets scorched as if on a hearth,
We control its motions when we're children,
And have almost lost the same when we're treated like children,
Takes some skill to know we're not this,
And a little more to know we'er beyond this!

So we come to the realm of the mind,
Where at first every little is a find,
We discover here a splatter of emotions,
Where they're augmented to gigantic proportions,
Takes good skill to know we're not this,
And a little more to know we're beyond this!

And so we arrive at the domain of the intellect,
Who bases his reasons between causes and effects,
He groups emotions as virtue and vice,
To the point we think it's fine and nice,
Takes great skill to know we're not this,
And a little more to know we're beyond this!

Beyond these fortresses of confusing duality,
Lies the master who blazes with non-duality,
Helping to this level requires some grace of might,
I think of none fitter but the Lord of Light,
He unleashes his arsenal to create a blizzard,
So we realize our true nature and become a wizard!
