Rather be Unintentional

Yutang Lin

Who could direct the evolution of worldly affairs?
Making demands on others is simply a waste of mind.
Instead of hosting prejudices, rather be unintentional.
Responding and acting at ease, free from calculations.


Constructions in empty space are no where to be found. Insisting and intending on their realization, only served to reveal one's own ignorance. Sustaining a plan to achieve some goals would render hindrances and failures encountered seem multiplied. Rather cease calculating in mind, and be at ease and peace with whatever comes around.
