Simply Being with Nothing to Be

Nowhere to go, nothing to do
No reputation to build, none to defend
No possessions to amass, none to protect
This is fearlessness born of Apranihita

Simply here, simply now
Simply birth, simply death
Simply content, simply aware
Simply abiding, simply being

No space, no time,
So no here, no now.
No self, no other,
So no attachment, no aversion.

Letting go with nothing to let go of
Practice with no path to walk
Simply being with nothing to be
This is the all-pervading wisdom of Dharmadhatu.

Ven. Edo Shonin and Ven. William Van Gordon
