This Body Is Not Me - Thich Nhat Hanh

This body is not me. I am not limited by this body. I am life without boundaries. I have never been born, and I have never died. Look at the ocean and the sky filled with stars, manifestations from my wondrous true mind. Since before time, I have been free. Birth and death are only doors through which we pass, sacred thresholds on our journey. Birth and death are a game of hide- and seek. So laugh with me, hold my hand, let us say good-bye, say good-bye, to meet again soon. We meet today. We will meet again tomorrow. We will meet at the source every moment. We meet each other in all forms of life.

-Thich Nhat Hanh


  1. I love this poem but I am having a hard time finding the true meaning behind it. What inspired this poem? Was it watching someone who died?

  2. Not being the author, I cannot say what inspired this. I can only offer what it means to me.

    I think if you identify with your soul, that immortal part of you that has been many places and done many things before coming here for this brief sojourn, it all comes into focus. My body is only a kindly container, here to carry me and serve me to the best of its ability. I love and thank my body, but I know it is not me, not the essence of who I really am.

    We come from somewhere else, we enter a body and live here, and then, when our visit is over, we slide out and move on to new adventures, new assignments. We return to the world of spirit, the place from which we came, and our true home. It is a vast and wonderful playground, and we have eternity to explore and learn about it. We are blessed, indeed.
