The Great Way is not difficult
for those who have no
When love and hate are both absent
everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction,
and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
If you wish to see the truth
then hold no opinions for
or against anything.
To set up what you like against what you dislike
is the disease of the mind.
When the deep
meaning of things is not understood
the minds essential peace is disturbed to no avail.
The Way is perfect like
where nothing is lacking and nothing is in excess.
Indeed, it is due to our choosing to accept or reject
that we do not see the true nature of things.
Live neither in the entanglements of outer things,
nor in inner
feelings of emptiness.
Be serene in the oneness of things
and such erroneous views will disappear by themselves.
you try to stop activity to achieve passivity
your very effort fills you with activity.
As long as you remain in one
extreme or the other
you will never know Oneness.
