Empty your mind of all thoughts
Let your heart be in peace.
Watch the turmoil of beings
but contemplate their return.
Each separate being in the universe
returns to the common source
Returning to the source is serenity.
If you don’t realise the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realise where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
kindhearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.
Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
and when death comes, you are ready.
