the unshakable.............

Nothing in the realm of thoughts or
ideologies is absolute.
Lean on one for long, and it collapses.
Because of this, there is nothing more
futile and frustrating than
relying on the  mind.

To arrive at the unshakable, you must
befriend the Tao.
To do this, quiet your thinking.
Stop analyzing, dividing,
making distinctions between 
one thing and another.
Simply see that you are at the center of
the universe, and accept all things and
beings as parts of your infinite body.
When you perceive that an act done
to another is done to yourself,
you have understood
the great truth.
