Relaxing in Unknown

Yutang Lin

Boundless width and depth could not be fathomed.
'Tis impossible to describe and beyond any control.
Both reality and one's fate are impenetrable as such.
Seeing thus, one remains relaxed in facing unknown.


Reality of the universe and personal fate are both incomprehensible. Views and words mold a superficial fa?ade that indeed forms hindrance to attainment of realization. Seeing thoroughly the reality of life's unpredictable and uncontrollable nature, it becomes easier for one to live with unknown and settle for the present situation.
