live for your center, not your senses


The five

colors blind the eye.

The five tones deafen the ear.

The five flavors overwhelm

the palate.


Fancy things

get in the way of one’s growth.

Racing here and there, hunting for

this and that—good ways to

madden your mind,

that’s all.


Relinquish what is without.

Cultivate what is within.

Live for your center,

not your senses.
