Yutang Lin

In oneness of all there is no choosing.
With preferences one constantly chooses.
All flow, like illusion; what to choose?
Grasping to views ceased, let others choose.


Originally all are in oneness that is boundless, hence no way to choose. Once there are preferences in mind, one chooses incessantly. All are flowing and passing away, like a show of illusions; why insist on choosing this or that? Having awakened one no longer grasps to views, and let others make their choices.
