A pearl is but a grain of sand,
Embalmed with long years of tears and pain,
Polishing it night and day,
The oyster slowly turns it into a priceless gem !
The Tao in Man is like the grain,
Man has to polish it with toil and tears,
After years of ordinary living,
The pearl will shine within!
Skillful talent and book knowledge are hindrances,
Just see our natural self within,
The pearl will set the course,
Follow that direction and arrive at the destination!
