Life is like the lens of a camera,
when one thing is focused on,
all existence around it may blur

The eye does much the same,
you bring something very close,
and all other things can no longer
truly be seen.

the mind is always in control.
For one cannot achieve this level of focus
if the mind does not permit it.

Just as you control the camera,
you control life.
