Mind And Body Arise While I Abide

A Meditation

Mind arises and I abide. Body arises and I abide.

Mind not arising, I abide. Body not arising, I abide.

It, therefore, makes no difference whether mind or body arises or not, no difference at all to me.

It is as if mind, intermittently arising, and body, intermittently arising, were to appear–to me–in the foreground. Meanwhile, I rest not on the ground but as the ground. Appearing to me, body and mind also appear in me.

Hearing appears to me and in me. Sensing appears to me and in me. Do you see?

What I am you are also. There is no difference. Do you see? It’s all really one and it’s all quite simple.

Know this and be free.
