Unbound by Perception

Yutang Lin

Differentiation could hardly avoid yielding limitations.
Mind confined by perceptions has no windows to open.
Comprehend forms as illusive and constantly changing;
Limitless-oneness would guide one to escape from mire.


Current perception would limit the scope of one's mind in subtle and unnoticeable ways. If one could remind oneself often that, all sensations are constantly evolving and hence could not be grasped, and that all things are originally in limitless oneness, then it would be possible to gradually achieve tranquility and relaxation beyond the confinement of appearances.
