REALIZE THIS AND GRASP AT NOTHING
A student asked: -For all the different people who have come to listen to your words, please tell us about the way you have found and know. The Buddha answered: -When you take things it is because of a thirst, a clinging and a grasping. You should lose that, and lose it altogether, above, below, around, and within. It makes no difference what it is you are grasping. When you grasp, you are losing your freedom. Realize this and grasp at nothing. Then you will cease being a creature of attachment, tied to the power of death.
