The Great Way is not difficult for those not attached to preferences. When neither like nor dislike arises, all is clear and undisguised. Separate by the smallest amount, however, and you are as far from it as heaven is from earth.
If you wish to know the truth, then hold to no opinions for or against anything. To set up what you like against what you dislike is the disease of the mind.
When the fundamental nature of things is not recognized, the mind's essential peace is disturbed to no avail. The Way is perfect as vast space is perfect, where nothing is lacking and nothing is in excess.
Indeed, it is due to our grasping and rejecting that we do not know the true nature of things. Live neither in the entanglements of outer things, nor in ideas or feelings of emptiness. Be serene and at one with things and erroneous views will disappear by themselves.
Don't waste your time in arguments and discussion attempting to grasp the ungraspable. Each thing reveals the One, the One manifests as all things.
To live in this Realization is not to worry about perfection or non-perfection. To put your trust in the Heart-Mind is to live without separation, and in this non-duality you are one with the Life-Source.
Words! Words! The Way is beyond language, for in it there is no yesterday, no tomorrow, no today.

Do not seek the truth, only cease to cherish your opinions.

With a single stroke you are freed from bondage;
nothing clings to you and you hold to nothing.
All is empty, clear, self-illuminating,
with no need to exert the mind.
Here, thinking, feeling, understanding, and imagination
are of no value.
In this world 'as it really is'
there is neither self nor other-than-self.

The more you think and talk,
The more you lose the Way.
Cut off all thinking
And pass freely anywhere.
