When you do not need anyone around
And even if you are sick,
You are still happy.
To be wrapped in silence
By a mind unattached,
Sinking deep into a foundation of stability.
A clear understanding that
All of us, everything
Are just mental creations, conditioned.
To have abandoned the “I am” conceit,
And is free.
