Third Patriarch of Zen

When you try to stop activity by passivity
your very effort fills you with activity. 
As long as you remain in one extreme or the other
you will never know Oneness. 

Those who do not live in the single Way
fail in both activity and passivity, 
assertion and denial. 
To deny the reality of things
is to miss their reality; 
To assert the emptiness of things
is to miss their reality.
