When you do not cling

When you do not cling
There is no you.

Actually,
There never was a you.

You are just:*
Water in mirage,
The son of a barren woman,
The snake in a rope,
The moon in a pail of water.

*these are all traditional Indian metaphors used to describe our basic mistake (original sin)
