When I heard the sound of the bell ringing,
there was no bell,
and there was no I -
there was only the ringing.
Once you stop clinging and let things be,
you’ll be free, even of birth and death.
You’ll transform everything…
And you’ll be at peace wherever you are.
Even as fire finds peace
in its resting place without fuel,
when thoughts become silence
the soul finds peace in its own source.
When the mind is silent,
then it can enter into a world
which is far beyond the mind:
the highest End.
The mind should be kept in the heart
as long as it has not reached the highest End.
This is wisdom, and this is liberation.
