Willing to Compromise

Yutang Lin

As grasping dissipated unnoticeably, demands lost;
Kindness imbued into willingness to render service.
Not only no competition but also humbly abstained,
Rejoice in having contributed to others' satisfaction.


Emphasizing on one's intentions would bring about much suffering of fighting and complaining. After long-term practice of letting go of grasping one's mind would become much more open to the extent that nothing is a must. Furthermore, one would then instead take pleasure in humble abstention and helping others to reach their goals.
