Have no roots, no home.'
Thoughts & emotions are exactly the same -
they have no roots, no home.
And yet we're continually rooting them,
taking them to be self, taking them to be I.
So we practice, with both thoughts & emotions
on this more ultimate level, of seeing their empty,
conditioned nature - just arising out of conditions
& passing away when conditions change.
'So indeed, these states not having been,
come into being; having been, they vanish.
Regarding these states, abide unattached, unrepelled,
independent, non-attached, free, not identified,
with a mind free of barriers.' "
