THE GREEN STONE
In the first step is the nature of the last
You are near if you consider yourself far
As before, so after
All energy moves towards cohesion and order
Do not submit to what must be controlled
A substance settled is not released from an open vessel
Transform, resonate and amplify
Thus does the sun birth the mother
Consume the corpses of saints but do not eat their bodies
With grace we disprove what others affirm as absolute
Progress is dependent on battle, not peace
The fixed liquid must be stirred
The primal void has shaped existence
Infinity will inevitably lead to improbability
Do not mistake the vessel for the contents
This is not the Truth. Neither is anything knowable.
Be sure to be uncertain and certain to be unsure.
Do not worry about what goes in your mouth but what comes out.
Ensure your vision strays to what you would rather not see from what you would.
Those who deny being and non-being and assert only being
have limited the incomprehensible to their reason.
That which is absurd and possible reveals how the impossible
is not absurd but may be beyond our rationality and reason.
Beyond the known and experienced is the unknown which has not been experienced.
