22: Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer

Der Wanderer übder dem Nebelmeer

What matters it
that you could climb
a mountaintop to see the view
if what is in your mind
remains a mystery to you?

True wisdom is to understand
that mind and matter
are the same;
that you’re the same as sky and land –
your mountaineering
quite in vain.
