Mind of Trust

Excerpt from - The Mind of Absolute Trust
…. by – Seng-Ts’an

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.
