Your life is right here where you eat and defecate.
If you believe there should be some new place
other than where you eat and defecate,
it is a delusion.
Life is about eating and defecating,
while being pleased to meet people
who have the same viewpoint
as you and arguing with people
who have a different one.
There’s nothing special in our lives.
You suffer because you hold the delusion
that life has to be special.
When you need to defecate,
go to the bathroom.
When you are hungry, eat.
Say, “I see,” when you meet someone
with a different opinion.
Wisdom is living like flowing water.
Life exists in the here and now.
