Realizing that this world is like bubbles, delusive,
An entire world is embodied within a single spot.
While picking up a jujube leaf can be effortless,
Yet it is rather difficult to contain it inside a mustard seed.
NOTE: Life is like duckweed, floating on water, not knowing its
destination. Life is also like clouds, drifting in the air, not knowing its
home. Swans and birds leave their footprints only temporarily on the
snowy ground before flying off once again, knowing not where the next
stop will be.
People are like travelers, occasionally crossing paths in life for a short
moment, and then separating once again. When conditions are present,
matters arise; and when conditions disperse, matters cease to be. The law
of Dependent Origination enables us to make peace with ever-changing
conditions, to do our best in a given role, to speak in accord with
principles, to settle in any given circumstances, to deal with different
people accordingly, and to be at perfect ease by following our hearts.
