Return to Simplicity


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!

  1. “Only when one is sick of this sickness can one cease to be sick.”….. Great quote Eddie.. seems many do not know they are sick Eddie.. Here’s to simplicity xxx

  2. I love this quote Eddie, so much truth in it. Thank you too, for another photo from your lovely garden. It keeps me inspired as I work on my own tiny patch 🙂
