Avoid seeking in someone else

“Avoid seeking him in someone else

or you will be far apart from the self.

Solitary now am I, and independent,

but I meet him everywhere.

He now is surely me,

but I am not he.

Understanding it in this way,

you will directly be one with thusness.”

—Tung-shan (807-869 AD)
