A description of the experience
The Complete Book of Zhu-Zi
The tip of the nose has white
I observe it all the time and all the places
Allow it, it is soft, gentle, pliant.
When clamness has reached this extremity
It hisses like a spring fish in the pond
When action has reached its extremity
It is harmonised like a hundred insects torpidity
Open and close harmonioulsy
Andits marvellousness is unlimited.

The clouds lying in the sky and the heaven
Cycling as it is
Who dares to question it?
keeping in one place harmoniously
Living one thousand and two hundred years
