Hsu Yun (1840-1959)
ON LIVING AT YUN YI SHI
(a place name which means "the stone moved by the clouds")
I like it best when I'm living out in the open,
As in the old days when I'd forget the years were passing,
When I'd follow where fate led me.
I thought nothing could change me.
But the Pearl of the Heart works in such an exquisitely subtle way.
It fills you. .. makes you feel complete with Heaven's Nature.
There's no need to move.
Before the beginning of this senseless world
The clouds moved this fist of a stone right here
To this very place.
