It is outside of knowing,
and is simply right there;
so obvious it is,
too simple to bear.
Know by not knowing, Wu know,
See by not seeing, Wu see;
Only in admitting knowing is dual,
can you be without trying to be.
It is all that is and is not,
no concept or attempt to be got;
We can only grasp nothing is there,
as a clock can not tick on a tock.
Right there when you are within,
unapparent when you try to hold on;
Do not let another attempt to explain,
their moving lips are admission its gone.
Though we are part of Tao,
we can act as the worst kind of fake;
Seeing your breath does not help the wind,
let a swamp in your mind be a lake.
Our viewpoints are relative see?
Tao has no intention just play;
Extremes in our mind are waves on the lake,
and just our nature sway.
Should you be high or low,
you will always remain in Tao;
There is no need to hold on either way,
as if going up hill and not down.
Where there is nothing in mind,
the greatest power is there to see;
Where we find nothing we are truly at one,
one and nothing have equality.
Here we sit with not one idea,
no-thought and your life are one kind;
The solid reality that you can touch,
is one with the ungraspable mind.
Like a ripe fruit decays,
to continue new life;
We see a seed is not birth,
and no one ever really dies.
To have destination,
makes the journey too tough;
Be going nowhere,
here is more than enough.
Nothing has to go,
just give everything up;
Bound to nothing,
you have a full cup.
Free people require no leader,
and Tao has nothing to lose;
A leader makes fear to interfere with here,
people you know what to choose.
Now just simplify your mind and self,
that’s all there is so just sit;
Be balance and unknowing flow,
Natures truth is here that’s it.
