Can you dissolve your ego?
Can you abandon the idea of self and other?
Can you relinquish the notions of male and female, short and long, life and death?
Can you let go of all these dualities and embrace the Tao without skepticism or panic?
If so, you can reach the heart of the Integral Oneness.
Along the way, avoid thinking of the Oneness as unusual, exalted, sublime, transcendental.
Because it is the Oneness, it is beyond all that.
It is simply the direct, essential, and complete truth.
Verse 14 – Hua Hu Ching
