No Objections

Yutang Lin

To see things as they are, do not assume positions.
Let things reveal themselves, without taking any as offense.

Do not insist one's own ideas forcefully onto others.
As others not paying attention, one also follows suit to forget.

Not maintaining fixed views, arrange matters according to situations.
Environments flow and change, accommodate oneself to let peace prevail.

If oneness could be attained, there would be no way to keep secrets.
Complying completely, things will reveal themselves totally.
