Letting go gives us freedom,

and freedom is the only condition for happiness.

If, in our heart, we still cling to anything –

anger, anxiety, or possessions –

we cannot be free.

In Rememberance for Tich Nhat Hanh,

who continues to recover in hospital.

Oregon2010 241The Is

is Life, Love, the Magnificent IT

at the center of your being.

The Is does not recognize the limitations of spacetime,

nor does it recognize your sorrows, fears, or beliefs.

It does not see you as an upright biped

on the surface of a third planet

from a little sun

at the edge of a small galaxy

of an insignificant universe

sandwiched for a moment between

multiple trillions of other universes.

IT sees you reflecting ITself,

and allows you the absolute freedom

to do anything you wish,

except to die.

Richard Bach
