Every dust is whole without reaching me, the ten thousand changes are stilled without shaking me. If you can sit here with stability then you can freely step across and engage the world with energy.
There is an excellent saying that the six sense doors are not veiled, the highways in all directions have no footprints. Always arriving everywhere without being confused, gentle without hesitation, the perfected person knows where to go.
