Do not go after the past,
Do not lose yourself in the future.
For the past no longer exists,
And the future is not yet here.
By looking deeply at things just as they are,
In this moment, here and now,
When the master Without a word raises his eyebrows The posts and rafters The cross beams and roof tree Begin to smile There is another place for conversing Heart to heart The full moon and the breeze At the half-open window.
