THIS BODY IS NOT ME

This body is not me; I am not caught in this body, I am life without boundaries,
I have never been born and I have never died. Over there the wide ocean and the sky with many galaxies

All manifests from the basis of consciousness. Since beginningless time I have always been free. Birth and death are only a door through which we go in and out.
Birth and death are only a game of hide-and-seek. So smile to me and take my hand and wave good- bye.
Tomorrow we shall meet again or even before. We shall always be meeting again at the true source,
always meet again on the myriad paths of life.

– From the Sutra, “Given to the Dying” in the Anguttara Nikaya
