The Great Way isn´t difficult
for those who are unattached to their preferences.
Let go of longing and aversion,
and everything will be perfectly clear.
When you cling to a hairbreadth of distinction,
heaven and earth are set apart.
If you want to realize the truth,
don´t be for or against.
The struggle between good and evil
is the primal disease of the mind.
Not grasping the deeper meaning,
you just trouble your mind´s serenity.
As vast as infinite space,
it is perfect and lacks nothing.
But because you select and reject,
you can´t perceive its true nature.
Don´t get entangled in the world;
don’t lose yourself in emptiness.
Be at peace in the oneness of things,
and all errors will disappear by themselves.
“Don’t lose yourself in emptiness”. That is, don’t be concerned either about the world or the doctrine of emptiness (there is no thing that has independent self-nature – the Buddhist doctrine of ‘dependent origination’).
