Taking Appearances to the Path
When I’m going, I take appearances to the path
Going with six consciousnesses free all by themselves
When I’m resting, I rest in uncontrived naturalness
This is the way to rest in the heart essence
When I’m eating, I eat within emptiness
This is the way to eat without perceiver or perceived
When I’m drinking, I drink from the river of mindfulness
This is the way to drink that never, ever ends
Going, wandering, sleeping, resting—I look at mind
This is virtuous practice without sessions or breaks!
