Subtle Origin


The subtle essence of the universe is always unoccupied,
yet it leaves nothing undone. If the people of the world
were wise enough to plant the root of their lives deep
within the Subtle Origin, then the worldly affairs of life
would coherently follow their own natural course, and
harmony would abound of its own accord. When confusion
takes place in one’s surroundings, it can be dissolved with
the power of undisturbable Simplicity. When life is ruled
by undisturbable Simplicity, desire and passion naturally
fall away and reveal people’s true original nature. Then the
peaceful order of the universe prevails and unity manifests
again of its own accord.
