Isolation

samprules2

Working through the  227 Rules For Monks. Who knew the simple life could be so complex. This another of the 92 pācittiyas.

Isolation

we’re doing this

for your own good

think of this cell

as your special place

a safe haven

from everyone around you

where no one is around you

no one to judge

mock

manipulate you

 

a place where you can be

yourself

regardless of how difficult

others will find that self

they won’t have to learn

how to get along with you

nor will you have to compromise

in any way to fit in

 

isolation

will make everyone happy

comfortable

because being comfortable

is better than accepting change

One thought on “Isolation

  1. I’ve never read about isolation in this context before. I rather enjoy your interpretation of it. It does not come across as harmful or a form of punishment.
