Achaan Chah


Try to be mindful,
and let things take their natural course.

Then your mind will become still
in any surroundings
like a clear forest pool.

All kinds of wonderful, rare animals
will come to drink at the pool,
and you will clearly see
the nature of all things.

You will see many strange and
wonderful things come and go,
but you will be still.

This is the happiness of the Buddha.
