Short & Quick ZEN

 

 

If there is leakage of views, the intellect does not stir from its fixed position – and falls into the poisonous sea.

 

 

 

 

 

If feelings leak, knowing turns towards for and against, and one’s view is biased.

 

 

 

 

 

Verbal leakage embodies the marvel but loses the fundamental. The intellect confuses beginning and end.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To turn without grasping for and against, without stopping to glue your view into a peg hole, without marvels of wordiness – that is all for your sake.
