    Chu’i the draftsman
    could draw more perfect circles
    freehand than with a compass

    His fingers brought forth
    spontaneous forms from nowhere
    His mind was meanwhile free and
    without concern with what he was doing

    No application was needed
    his mind was perfectly simple
    and knew no obstacle

    So, when the shoe fits,
    the foot is forgotten
    when the belt fits, the belly is forgotten
    and when the heart is right,
    for and against are forgotten

    No drives, no compulsions,
    no needs, no attractions
    then your affairs are under control
    you are a free man

    Easy is right
    begin right and you are easy
    continue easy and you are right
    The right way to go easy
    is to forget
    the right way
    and forget that
    the going is easy
