Life Without Boundaries (by Thich Nhat Hanh)

Life without boundaries by Thich Nhat Hanh

This body is not me. I am not caught in this body.
I am life without boundaries.
I have never been born, and I shall never die.
Look at the ocean and the sky filled with stars,
manifestations of 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 just a game of hide and seek.

So laugh with me,
hold my hand,
let us say goodbye,
say goodbye, to meet again soon.

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

by Thich Nhat Hanh

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
