When I’m meditating, I abide
In the natural state, effortlessly settled
In the unwavering state, freely settled
In the open state, luminously settled
In the bliss state, clearly settled
In the concept free state, lightly settled
In the multiple & variable state, evenly settled
And this is how Awareness itself settles.
Multiple certainties ceaselessly arise,
effortlessly enlightened activity.
Wishing for results? No!
What a pleasure!
Hope & fear addicted? No!
Confusion becomes wisdom.
What a delight!
