“Dying into Life”

gold bell hanging on brown wooden wall

Birth dies into life

Death gives birth again

In an endless cycle

For you to find

Your Buddha nature….

Impermanent

Like the winds of change

Yet, there is something

That still remains

Underlying our true essence….

Luminous

Like a full moon rising

And all knowing

Like eagles soaring

It is the spring lotus

Of awareness blooming…

Try to grasp it

And it slips away

Try to name it

And it defies you

This inner witness cannot be tamed

By your mind’s deceptive tricks

Of narrow conceptions….

When the fear of dying falls away

What is there left to say?

Birth and death are the same.
