I often read the following words during an Enlightenment Intensive lecture. It is a verse taken from the Chinese text called the Hsin-hsin Ming. It's sage counsel that is applicable to the Enlightenment Dyad process and of course, all of life. It’s essentially a road map for those walking on the Path of Great Awakening that is credited to the 6th Century Zen Master Seng-ts’an.
The Hsin-hsin Ming has been translated by scores of individuals over the last several hundred years. The title, Hsin-hsin Ming has a variety of possible translations. I like these three variations: Song of the Trusting Heart; The Perfect Way and Treatise on Faith in the Mind.
Follow your nature and flow with the Tao.
Enjoy yourself and stop worrying.
If your thoughts are tied you spoil what is genuine.
Don’t be antagonistic to the world of the senses, for when you are not antagonistic,
They turn out to be the same as complete Awakening.
The wise person does not strive.
The ignorant person ties their self up.
If you work on your mind with your mind,
You cannot avoid an immense confusion.
