Am I Living or Dying?

death life poem

Rain coming, rain going
Sitting in the Zen Center office
Am I living or dying?
All things are changing
Yet in this moment, nothing is changing.
What is life?
What is death?
True self has no life or death
Is that correct?


The sun is piercing through the clouds
The room is shining bright!
