Hsin Hsin Ming
the great way is not
reality of things
cease to hold opinions
the unity of emptiness
to live in the great way
all things are seen equally
to this ultimate finality
in this world of suchness
the way is beyond
Hsin Hsin Ming - to live
in the great way
To live 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.
Obey the nature of things (your own nature),
and you will walk freely and undisturbed.
When thought is in bondage the truth is hidden,
for everything is murky and unclear,
and the burdensome practice of judging
brings annoyance and weariness.
What benefit can be derived
from distinctions and separations?
If You wish to move in the One Way
do not dislike even the world
of senses and ideas.
Indeed, to accept them fully
is identical with true Enlightenment.
The wise man strives to no goals
but the foolish man fetters himself.
There is one Dharma, truth, law. not many;
from the clinging needs of the ignorant.
To seek Mind with the discriminating mind
is the greatest of all mistakes.
