stand alone and go alone


You should be aloof

and independent — stand alone and go alone.

You should cut off sentiments and detach from perception

and make yourself empty and silent so there is not a single thing

that can be grasped. Cut off the myriad entanglements, and make

yourself free and untrammeled, and reach the stage of great

peace. When this is closely continuous without any leaks,

this is what is called standing like a wall

miles high, lofty and steep.
