No Complaints

Yutang Lin

When had complaints inspired people profoundly?
Only added self-disturbance and blurred the sight.
Reflect on one's grasping to open up one's views,
Seek and traverse other paths to nurture potentials.


Complaining about others, how would that help the matters? Only added commotions and wasted mind and energy in vain. Reflect on one's grasping to find out where the stagnation lies. Open up one's views even to the extent of abiding beyond views. Bypass wrestling and develop alternative routes. Thus wisdom gradually matures and skillful means come alive and accommodating.
