I had a discussion with a great master in Japan… and we were talking about the various people who are working to translate the Zen books into English, and he said, “That’s a waste of time. If you really understand Zen… you can use any book. You could use the Bible. You could use Alice in Wonderland. You could use the dictionary, because… the sound of the rain needs no translation.
So, the whole idea, you see, is that everything’s falling apart, so don’t try and stop it. When you’re falling off a precipice, it doesn’t do you any good to hang onto a rock that’s falling with you. See? But everything is doing that. And so, again, this is another case of our completely wasting our energy in trying to prevent the world from falling apart. Don’t do it. And then you’ll be able to do something interesting with the free energy.
