free and easy

Imagemfree and easy.A spontaneous Vajra Song by Venerable Lama Gendun Rinpoche

 

Happiness cannot be found through great effort and willpower,

but is already present, in open relaxation and letting go.

Don’t strain yourself,

there is nothing to do or undo.

Whatever momentarily arises in the body-mind has no real importance at all,

has little reality whatsoever.

Why identify with, and become attached to it,

passing judgment upon it and ourselves?

Far better to simply

let the entire game happen on it’s own,

springing up and falling back like waves without changing or manipulating

anything and notice how everything vanishes and reappears, magically, again and again

time without end.

Only our searching for happiness prevents us from seeing it.

It’s like a vivid rainbow which you pursue without ever catching,

or a dog chasing it’s own tail.

Although peace and happiness do not exist as an actual thing or place,

it is always available and accompanies you every instant.

Don’t believe in the reality of good and bad experiences;

they are like today’s ephemeral weather,

like rainbows in the sky.

Wanting to grasp the ungraspable,

you exhaust yourself in vain.

As soon as you open and relax this tight fist of grasping,

infinate space is there-open,inviting and comfortable.

Make use of this spaciousness, this freedom and natural ease.

Don’t search any further.

Don’t go into the tangled jungle

looking for the great awakened elephant,

who is already resting quietly at home

in front of your own hearth.

Nothing to do or undo,

nothing to force,

nothing to want,

and nothing missing-

Emaho! Marvelous!

Everything happens by itself.
