embrace nothing, turn nothing away

The Mind


When the mind is attracted
To anything it senses,
You are bound.

When there is no attraction,
You are free.

Where there is no I,
You are free.

Where there is I,
You are bound.

Consider this.
It is easy.

Embrace nothing,
Turn nothing away.

Ashtavakra Gita
