Paradox

Paradoxes:  best wakefulness in sleep, wealth in having
nothing, a pearl necklace

fastened around an iron collar.  Fire contained in boiling
water. Revenues growing from

funds flowing out.  Giving is gainful employment.  It brings in
money.  Taking time for

ritual prayer and meditation saves time.  Sweet fruit hide in
leaves.  Dung becomes food

for the ground and generative power in trees.  Nonexistence
contains existence. Love

encloses beauty.  Brown flint and gray steel have orange
candlelight in them.  Inside

the body-cow, a handsome prince.
