Valuing a thing,
the best we can do for it
is to let it go.
our best course
is to let our selves go.
Letting go of self
sets self free.
Freed, self joins with the Tao.
This can be called immortality.
Putting value upon a thing, then we want to own it.
If we already own it, then we want to keep it.
When we come to truly value ourselves,
why not free ourselves of limits?
Letting go of ourselves, we find great freedom.
Removing all self-imposed limits,
there is nothing we can not do.
Finally we understand that death itself is meaningless.
Having no limits means that death, too, is no limit.
Immortality involves living each moment, so that time
no longer contains us within limits we have already let go of.
