neither me nor mine…


Name and form are constantly changing;
Their background alone is real.
Body, senses and mind are changing;
“I” alone is changeless and real,
Through all states and times.
One is the “I” when
All experiences are left behind.
One is sentient space.
Just as the sky is not affected by clouds,
One is not affected by
The phenomena that arise in oneself.
As such, the practice of this moment is
The practice of every moment, and that is
The seeing through of whatever it is that
Arises as “not me, not mine””
