Fly straight, guīmì. Stay true, move strong, what more can you do? I’ve been calling to you. Through the mists that sweep through the old town gate and the rush of the mountain waterfalls, I have whispered your name. Naturalness. Is that what they call it? Come here to me, but come not for me, come not for the mountain. Come to be. Be in the way that the leaves turn towards the sun. Be in the way that the birds sweep across the sky in the evening. How is it to have action without action? It doesn’t mean to step slowly or to whittle away to nothing in honor of the almighty thought. One cannot chase after wu wei. It doesn’t even happen to you. It is you. You, me, here, the mountain. Turn your ear, turn your mind, turn your wing. Life has been waiting for you since you were born. [Kathleen McCampbell]

向前飞吧,闺蜜。保持真我,坚强作动,你还能做什么呢?我一直在寻找你。雾气扫过老旧的城门,湍急的瀑布,我轻轻呼唤你的名字。顺乎自然。这就是他们的称呼吗?来吧,但不是为了我,为了山峦,只是为了存在于此。就像叶子转向阳光。就像鸟儿划过夜空。无为之为,并不是说借着全能的头衔,慢下脚步或者无所事事。无为不是追求获得的。它甚至不会发生在你身上。因为它就是你。你,我,这里,群山。挥动你的耳朵、思想、翅膀。自从出生以来,生命就在等待着你。
