Yutang Lin

Obeying causal conditions, things would be natural;
Giving up partial grasping no more causes to gloom.
Upon opportune juncture give indication and advice;
Running on separate courses, no need to bother with.


Any move made, let it be in accordance with causal conditions. In the absence of longing and expectation, at ease with letting things come naturally. When the situation and the recipient are both appropriate give guidance and advice right at the juncture. Let people rush to various paths; in the absence of comments all remain in peace.
