Not to Follow Others' Grasping

Yutang Lin

Thoughts in mind are originally without substance,
Not to mention being one-sided and full of errors.
Do not grasp to things originated by others' grasping.
Enjoy the tranquility of originally no such matters.


Thoughts in mind stayed only as results of grasping. Each one's views are prejudiced somehow; when had views been true to facts? Deluded guesses and suspicions created karmas and much fuss. Do not follow others' delusion to become entangled in a mess of accusations. Let people do their distorted gossiping; originally no such matters. Thoughts and ideas are illusive; they passed away with time.
