Light grey land

If this land had color it would be light grey: the color of sand, cacti, and naked mountains against endless sky.

In order to recognize the non-existence of individual ego,

the mind must become still.

In this state, the thinking mind ceases to be active,

and true mind becomes serene.

In this state of tranquility,

one does not recognize the passage of tie,

so others have to keep track of it for him.
