Enjoy Being Idle
When you see with the eye of wisdom,
everything is the work within it.
What else would be?
How pleasant it is
to spend idle time enjoying the Samadhi of mindlessness!
You should uncover this principle in person.
It is easy if you know,
You can't help groping about the wrong place for it if you don't know.
Though falling rain wets the earth, it can't wet the mind.
However, rain can't get out of mind and mind also can't leave rain.
What principle is this?
Have you ever seen a cloud out of the air?
What does this thought originate from?
When time is ripe, the mountains turn green naturally.
When time is ripe, the mountains turn red naturally.
