How can you not see the Way?
In the eyes, it is called seeing;
In the ears it is called hearing;
In the nose, it is called smelling;
In the tongue, it is talking;
In the hands, it is grasping
And in the feet, it is running.
Those who know call it
And those who do not know
Call it spirit.
If you try to reason about it or
Divide it up, then you are swept
Right into karmic consciousness.
Therefore, the Changsha monk said:
“Those who study the Way
do not awaken to the truth.”
