Without contrast the image is blurred.
Looking at the background; the silence,
the vastness, the emptiness;
the foreground is no longer the same.
The void, the unlimited is real;
it is not separate from you.
Nothing to hold, nothing to keep.
Neither possessions, nor loved ones,
nor the body, nor the mind, nor the self.
Clinging is taken away.
Resisting is gone.
Holding is gone. Holding is gone.
Gone, gone, gone beyond.
Gone utterly beyond.
