lyrics

The student brings a problem to the teacher, and he says I suffer and it's a problem to me.
And the teacher says you suffer because you desire, and if you didn't desire, you wouldn't suffer, so try not to desire.
And the student goes away and says "I'm not very succesful in this. I can't stop desiring; it's terribly difficult. And, furthermore, I find that in desiring, I'm desiring to stop desiring. Now what am I to do about that?
And the teacher replies "Do not desire to stop desiring anymore than you can"
And so the student goes away and practices that, but he comes back to the teacher and says "I still find myself desiring excessively to stop desiring, and it doesn't work"
So the teacher says "do not desire too much not to desire to stop desiring"
Now do you see what is happening?
Step by step, almost like Achilles approaching the tortoise, the student is being brought together with himself.
Many thanks to Jonathan Robinson for his guitars, ideas, and feedback!
