Birth and death, profit and loss, success and failure, health and sickness— these qualities are the world in its constant transformations.
Day in and day out, they vanish into each other before our very eyes,
and we don’t know where they come from.
The Master maintains her balance whichever opposite she enters.
She lets things go through their changes and stays focused on what is real.
She is like the ocean: though there are waves on the surface,
in its depths there is perfect calm.
