The Great Way – TAO – is not difficult,

for those who have no preferences.

When love and hate are both absent

everything becomes clear and undisguised.

Make the smallest distinction, however,

and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.

If you wish to ee the truth

then hold no opinions for or against

The struggle for what one likes and what

on dislikes, is the disease of the mind

brick-bicycle

When the deep meaning of things is not understood

the mind’s essential peace is disturbed  to no avail

The Way is perfect like vast space

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, or the in inner feelings of emptiness.

Be serene (without striving activity) in the oneness of things and such erroneous views will disappear by themselves.

When  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.
