the essential thing in studying the way


The essential thing

in studying the Way is to make

the roots deep and the stem strong.

Be aware of where you really are twenty-four

hours a day. You must be most attentive. When nothing

at all gets on your mind, it all merges harmoniously,

without boundaries — the whole thing is empty

and still, and there is no more doubt or

hesitation in anything you do. This is

called the fundamental matter

appearing ready-made.
