So free am I, so gloriously free Free from three petty things—

From mortar, from pestle, and from my twisted lord,
Freed from rebirth and death I am,
And all that has held me down is hurled away.

—Mutta, Sixth Century Buddhist Poet

This life you must know

as the tiny splash of a raindrop:
A thing of beauty that disappears as it comes into being.

Therefore, set your goal.
