'wanting nothing
with all your heart
stop the stream.

when the world dissolves
everything becomes clear.

go beyond
this way or that way
to the farther shore
where the world dissolves
and everything becomes clear.

beyond this shore
and the farther shore,
beyond the beyond,
where there is no beginning,
no end.

without fear, go.

live purely.
be quiet.
do your work, with mastery.'

/ excerpt from 'the true master' out of the dhammapada
