    poem by ryoken taigu

    Where beauty is, then there is ugliness;
    where right is, also there is wrong.
    Knowledge and ignorance are interdependent;
    Delusion and enlightenment condition each other. Since olden times it has been so.
    How could it be otherwise now?
    Wanting to get rid of one and grab the other is merely realizing a scene of stupidity.
    Even if you speak of the wonder of it all,
    how do you deal with each thing changing.

    If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?

    Yea, the way he describes the reality of duality is plain and simple and the scene of stupity is often me.
