Yutang Lin

Humbling to practice the ways of selflessness.
Selfless ways are humbling and harmonious.
Right or wrong, it is not to be held illusively.
Changes accommodated in line with causation.


This morning in a dream I composed this poem in Chinese and wrote it on a piece of paper. Guru Chen took a look from behind me and commented, "Xie De Hen Hao (Very well written!)" and then left. After Iwoke up I remembered only the first three lines. So I composed the last line to make it complete.
