REACHING THE SOURCE (Number 9 of 10)

Too many steps have been taken returning to the root and the source.
Better to have been blind and deaf from the beginning!
Dwelling in one’s true abode, unconcerned with that without –
The river flows tranquilly on and the flowers are red.

You’ve returned to the origin, went back to the source – such wasted effort.
How much better to just be blind and deaf?
From inside one’s hut, you don’t see outside your hut,
Let the streams just flow on, the flowers just bloom red.
