Bob O’Hearn - Getting Free of the Trap

First of all, stop trying.

The one who wants to get free
is the trap itself, the illusion itself.

Sitting still in the midst of it
without trying to change the experience,
something unexpected happens.

Keep breathing,
it is all OK.

Whatever it is,
it is a gift.

Turn nothing away,
receive it all.

Feel it,
however it comes —
some sorrow, pain, heart hurt —
it is all just for you.

Isn’t it a miracle
that we can feel?

That we can experience?

How amazing to contemplate:
that emptiness can give birth
to all of this, and then can
feel it so fiercely!

What a wonder!

But don’t hold on,
cling to nothing.

Bow in thanks,
then let it go.
