Return to Simplicity

 IMG_1340

He who regards his intellectual knowledge
as ignorance has deep insight.
He who overrates his intellectual achievement
as definite truth is deeply sick.
Only when one is sick of this sickness
can one cease to be sick.
One who returns his mind to the simplicity
of the subtle truth
is not sick.
He knows to break through conceptual knowledge
in order to directly reach
the subtle truth of the universe.
This is the foundation of his health!
