No Conflict

Yutang Lin

Not easy to reach agreement, difficult to comply;
Helping to satisfy all wishes is even rarer to find.
Actions chosen only to help reach enlightenment;
Responses and maneuvers are free from conflicts.


It is not easy for views to match. Complying with divergent views is uncomfortable. Helping to satisfy others' intentions is indeed rare to find. It might be possible when one's sincerity moves others' hearts. Any intention not to be violated; how could going along with sentient beings' wishes be accomplished? When all considerations hinge only on helping to attain enlightenment, then possible responses and maneuvers could fill the space between heaven and earth.
