Natural Development

Yutang Lin

Causes and conditions for transient scenes are complex;
Success and failure of attempts could not be compelled.
Stop desiring and expectation to accept natural courses;
At the juncture of life and death no need to feel anxious.


Matters evolve in accordance with their causes and conditions, and hence have their own paces. How could they move exactly as people desire? If one could stop desiring and expecting and instead accept the natural courses of events, then in daily life there is no hurry and anxiety, and even at the juncture of life and death there is no need to be nervous.
