SunThere is nothing to cling to.

Indeed, there is no clinging.

There is nothing by which to be repulsed.

Indeed, there is no repulsion.

There is no impurity to cleanse away.

Indeed, there is neither impurity nor purity.

There is no enlightenment to attain.

Indeed, there is no ignorance.

I am not this.

I am not that.

None of these things are in me.

I am in none of these things.

Nothing can hold me.

No one can keep me.

I am not merely free.

I am freedom itself.

And I will proclaim my Self from the tops of the mountains.

I will shout the Truth from the steps of every temple.

I will tell every being that I meet,

“I am divine, my sisters, my brother,

And so you are. And so are you.

For we are One. We are One!

And nothing can stop us now!”
