Look at this massive thing.
A glowing ball of blue and white.
Floating in space
Glowing with light,
Teeming with life.
“I” have grown
From the surface of this glowing ball.
Like the fish,
and the cloud.
But what makes me ME?
And what makes you YOU?
Are not we all “I?”
Then who, in fact, is “You?”
Which is the free and joyous spirit?
The spirit that is not tied down by emotional attachments.
Given enough time, hydrogen begins to wonder where it came from and where it is going.
Sit back, relax, and watch
The empty stage of your mind
As experiences arise, take over, and pass away,
Engulfing the theater,
In IMAX 3D and Dolby Digital Surround Sound.
But stay alert!
Use your breathing as an anchor,
Or you’ll be thrown from your seat,
Whisked by thought into a dream,
Losing sight of the stage,
Lost in your mind,
Believing the dream to be reality.
So hold on tight as you observe,
The waves of Mind as they roll through
Changing, swirling around you.
Hang on to your breath now, as you
CLOSE YOUR EYES.
