The Simple Path to Awakening

Choose to be alone and to keep quiet
for fifteen minutes. Detach yourself
from all that appears in the mind or
through the senses. Do not try to control
the mind. Simply stay empty and aware
but not of anything in particular.

Let whatever comes come; simply refuse
to engage or control. Remain only aware
of being aware, apart and uninvolved. 

Spontaneously, it will become clear 
and obvious that everything comes and goes
by themselves but yourself is like an empty
and unchanging space—peaceful, content
and unaffected by the traffic of the mind and 
world. Discover yourself to be that in which
the mind, personal self and its world appears 
and disappears. You remain untouched
as pure beingness.
