The Path less trodden
Far better to have nothing further to seek,
and to put oneself at ease.
When hungry, I eat.
When sleepy, I shut my eyes.
Fools laugh at me;
the wise understand.
The truly Awake persons understand
that there is nothing to seek in written words.
By doing so, one merely tires their heart and
inhale icy/dusty air without profit.
Better not to let the heart be
enticed by affinity linkage [Something one inclines to or responds to (affinity) and so tends to get caught by it (linkage) – “this is it,” and stops going further.],
and so to go beyond paths with all their
impressive apparatus of learning.
This is the path less trodden.
