Untying Fixations

Yutang Lin

Untying fixations need not wait for reasoning to get through.
Just let it go, free from incessant bothers, and that would do.
In open-mindedness one no longer cares to look for grasping.
Let it come and go, all such matters are of no significances.


Grasping to a fixed view would bring about much inconvenience. To untie bondage, do not add disputes. Let it go all at once, peace and tranquility will arrive sooner. A humble mind is clear and lucid, with nothing to occupy the attention. Fixations may rise and disperse, the great emptiness remains clean and even.
