Mani-padme

The jewel of the mind rests between the eyes. Jewels have always been precious things - and what is precious is coveted and never by only the possessor. When a pearl shines most brightly one must guard it most fiercely and in turn be hardened. It is in this way that all treasures make monsters of men, even internal treasures, even those holy, divine, or calcified of love. All things of this world hold trans-figurative power and all men are clay. Hyga knew nothing of this as she sat cross-legged, glowing from the center of her eyes and becoming singular of mind. The jewel was afire with ancient purpose and the layers of her being were transfixed upon it, dissolving for a moment into the great wholeness. There rested true peace. There rested the seed of her earthly undoing. Even knowing the future, which at times in gasps and in glimpses we all do, Hyga would have stoked that flame for that holy fire was more her being than the peels and fruits that were to be later destroyed so fully.
