This Body is not Me
by Thich Nhat Hanh

“This body is not me.
I am not limited by this body.
I am life without boundaries.
I have never been born,
and I have never died.

Look at the ocean and
the sky filled with stars,
manifestations from my
wondrous true mind.

Since before time, I have been free.
Birth and death are only doors
through which we pass,
sacred thresholds on our journey.

Birth and death are a game
of hide- and seek.
So laugh with me,
hold my hand,
let us say good-bye,
say good-bye, to meet again soon.

We meet today.
We will meet again tomorrow.
We will meet at the source every moment.
We meet each other in all forms of life.”
