Meditation for the Month

                  
                     FORTY  EIGHT

Learning builds daily accumulation,
 but the practice of the Way of spiritual integration
with the subtle essence of the universe
 builds daily simplification.
Simplify and simplify, until all contamination
 from relative, contradictory thinking is eliminated.
Then one does nothing, yet nothing is left undone.
 One who wins the world
 does so by not meddling with it.
One who meddles with the world loses it.
