“To life in the Great Way is neither easy nor difficult,
But those with limited views are fearful and irresolute:
The faster they hurry, the slower they go,
And clinging cannot be limited;
Even to be attached to the idea of enlightenment is to go astray.
Just let things be in their own way
And there will be neither coming nor going.”
-Hsin Hsin Ming, Verses on the faith mind
