Judging yourself causes separation between right and wrong.
Right and wrong creates shame or pride and an inner shadow.
Labeling thoughts, words, or deeds, as acceptable or unacceptable
Takes one from wholeness and integrity into light and darkness.
Therefore, follow the pattern of virtue set forth by nature.
Let your heart shine joy and love on everyone, like the Sun towards the Earth.
Watch your judgments, shame, and pride float by, like a lake watches a flock of geese fly over.
In this way, the Sage allows the coming and going of people, thoughts, and energy
Without grasping, without gain or loss. Because of this, he is at peace.
