PATH BY PRINCIPLE
AND BY PRACTICE"
Third, to seek nothing. Ordinary people, in their
perpetual ignorance, crave and form attachments to
everything, everywhere. This is called seeking.
The wise are awakened to the Truth, and choose
reason over convention; their minds are at peace
and wu-wei. All forms change with karma, all
existence is empty, hence there is nothing to be
desired. Blessing and Darkness always follow each
other. This long sojourn in the Triple Realm is
like living in a burning house; to have a body is
to suffer, how can one attain peace? Those who
understand this renounce all mundane existence,
cease desires, and stop seeking. The sutra says,
“To seek is to suffer, to seek nothing is bliss.”
It follows that to seek nothing is to truly follow
the Way. This is the practice of seeking nothing.
