"I see that I am not limited by this body made of the four elements. I am the whole of the river of life, of blood, and of spiritual ancestors that has been continuously flowing for thousands of years and flows on for thousands of years into the future. I am one with my ancestors and descendants.
I am aware that in me is a river of life that contains all generations of my blood and spiritual ancestors and descendants. I am their continuation. I am practicing to let go
of everything that I think is myself and belongs to me, so that I can become one with the river of life that is flowing in me.
That river includes my spiritual teachers of countless generations from the past and those currently present, of this lifetime, they are all present in me. They have transmitted in me seeds of peace, understanding, love and happiness. I open my heart and accept all my spiritual ancestors and descendants.
I am life that is manifest in countless different forms. I am one with all species whether they are peaceful and joyful or suffering and afraid. I am present everywhere in this world. I have been present in the past and will be there in the future.
The disintegration of this body does not touch me, just as when the petals of the plum blossom fall it does not mean the end of the plum tree.
I see that I am like a wave on the surface of the ocean. I see myself in all other waves, and all the other waves in myself. The manifestation or the disappearance of the wave does not lesson the presence of the ocean.
My lifetime like that of a leaf or that of a Buddha, is immeasurable. I am able to go beyond the idea that I am a body separate from all other manifestations of life in time and in space.
I touch the earth three times to see the no birth, no death nature of myself and let go of the idea that I am a body separate from all other manifestations of life."
