Depression and Fear Are My Friends
Depression does not come or go
Depression does not arise or cease
Depression does not bind me
And so there is no being free
Depression is not real
So depression is my Dharma friend!
Fear does not come or go
Fear does not arise or cease
Fear does not bind me
So there’s no being free
And so fear is meditation’s best friend!
