Tao-Ch’uan

‘The Way of the ancients was said to be “just so.” For by the time they talked about it, it had already changed. But when the Way changes, where does it go? Spit it out! It doesn’t run off just anywhere. Where does it actually go? Speak! Words won’t burn your mouth. Just: on a clear still night the moon shines alone. So: water doesn’t exist apart from waves. The waves are water.’ (Commentary on the Diamond Sutra)
