Without contrast the image is hazy. Realising the background:
the silence, the peace, the no-thingness;
the wonder of eternity comes into view.
Nothing to hold, nothing to keep.
Neither possessions, nor loved ones,
nor the body, nor the mind, nor the self.
Clinging is taken away.
Resisting is gone.
Holding is gone. Holding is gone.
Gone, gone, gone beyond.
Gone utterly beyond.
