Like Flowers Planted on Rock

You must let go of both sides and cast down the middle, being in the midst of sound and form like flowers planted on rock, seeing profit and fame as dust in the eye.  If you don't stop now, when are you waiting for? 

This is why ancient sages taught people to be complete in the present; if you can get to have nothing on your mind, even Buddhas and enlightened ancestors are enemies -- all mundane things will naturally be cool and simple. 

-Zen Master Furong
