Nirvana means breathe out. What a relief that was!
Let it go because it will come back if you do,
But if you hold on to it you will suffocate.
Who on earth would want to be caught dead in that state?
A person who has reached nirvana is one who
Is blown out in accordance with natural laws.
There’s no moralism in this whatsoever.
Just let go. Do not cling to anything at all.
If you put your hand near fire you know it will burn.
If you want less anxiety then you must learn
How to let go completely. By dropping the ball,
It will bounce back when you’re ripe for the endeavor.
Keeping up with the rat race is part of the game
But a minuscule one when compared to relief
That surpasses the ego’s will to cling tightly
To that which isn’t fun anymore. You will see
That you have all eternity. Life isn’t brief
When you know that the universe is yours to claim.
So, relax and let the forces of evil be.
Let the world heal itself without your discontent
Because you’re no crusader when you are uptight.
Breathing Out has no view on what’s wrong or what’s right.
As you do so you will find that it’s time well spent.
You will become a master eventually.
