Previous Poem, The raft across the ocean of samsara Part Two, All that you are attached to, all that you Love, Next Poem, Reality is One, there are not two realities


All that you are attached to, all that you Love,

all that you know, someday will be gone.

Knowing this, and that the world is your mind

which you create, play in and suffer from,

is known as discrimination.

Discriminate between the Real and the unreal.

The known is unreal and will come and go

so stay with the Unknown, the Unchanging, the Truth.

Discrimination destroys clinging

by exposing the transience, the illusory nature,

of the object to be clung to.

All which appears and disappears is not Real,

and no nectar will come from it so don’t cling to it.

Once you let go do not turn back to it.

Stay as Eternity in your own Being.
