The Great Way

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.  
When love and hate are both absent, everything becomes clear and undisguised.  
Make the smallest distinction, however, and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart. 

If you wish to see the truth, then hold no opinions for, or against, anything.  
To set up what you like against what you dislike is the disease of the mind.  
When the deep meaning of things is not understood, the mind's essential peace is disturbed to no avail.
