A Single Source by Wu Hsin

waveWu Hsin closesIn summary:
There is a single source,The Source orAnother name of your choosing.This world is a mereEmanation from the Source,The potential manifesting fromThe pure Potentiality,An appearanceComprising tens of thousands of things.Beings are but one of theTens of thousands of things.Sentient and discriminatingThrough whomThe Source functions.This functioning,Beings have namedLife.Each being,According to its naturePerforms its allotted tasksDuring its time.One’s nature is not chosen, controlledNor decided upon.It is as it is intended to be.One goes throughOne’s lifeChoosing between the dualities;Good and badHappy and sadLoving, hatingInteracting with a seeming other.This is Life,Alternating between two banks ofA flowing river.Believing in their individuality,Beings suffer as they strive toProtect themselves fromA world that is in flux every moment.How can they resist the changes ofThe ever-changing?It is a journeyDoomed to fail.Embracing change isEmbracing What-isIn every moment.It is saying “yes”To Life,Not Life as one would have itBut life as it is.It is understanding thatThere is no oneDoing anythingOther thanThe DoerAnd that each is an actorOn the stage.The script is writtenThe sets arranged.Watch the play,Enjoy it.Laugh, cry,But never make the storyYour own.
