Enter the Ultimate Emptiness.
Hold on wholeheartedly to Peace.
While creation forms and arises to activity,
I only contemplate the Return.
As much as they flourish, each of them will return to the root.
To return to the root is to find Peace.
To find Peace is called returning to one’s nature.
To return to one’s nature is to be one with the Eternal law.
To be one with the Eternal law is clarity.
To abandon the Eternal law is to court disaster.
To be one with the Eternal law is to be universal.
To be universal Leads to being just.
To be just is to be Sovereign.
Sovereign is Heaven.
Heaven is one with the Way;
To be one with the Way is to be
safe one’s complete life.
