Grasping without Hindrance

Yutang Lin

Not to react to others' grasping to form a grasping,
Do not let one's grasping become others' hindrance.
Views differ, let each carry on in individual ways.
No need to focus at some point to ignite a conflict.


Grasping is hardly avoidable; getting rid of grasping is rather hard. While counting others' grasping, that is already one's own grasping. Insisting on pushing forward one's grasping, more or less that will hinder others'. Each has individual views, and will carry on in the direction of particular inclinations. Just move aside the focus, and then conflict will be avoided. Even though each still maintains particular grasping, coexistence is without hindrance.
