Grandmaster Lily Lau: What is the Meaning of Life?

img_3547-3In a short time, you will evolve beyond confusion and disappointment and arrive at the Dao. Ultimately you will attain great profundity. In simplicity you will find the most joy. Indifference is the highest expression of a mature life.

I dreamed I was riding a horse on the prarie with no restraints of any kind. I had no name or interests, no love or hate, and no fear. My life became a passing phase, time dropped away and I am ready for whatever.

Bring on the completion!

Original Chinese version: 
小時候,從迷惘到悟道,究竟有多遠? 原來都在無常之間,簡單最快樂,淡然是一種彻悟,人生的成熟。我夢想自己能單獨騎著馬在草原上奔馳,那裡再沒有束縛、沒有名與利、沒有愛與恨、沒有任何的傷害⋯我可以自由地在呼吸之間計算一下從生到死,從迷到悟,究竟有多遠,原來都在無常之間,簡單最快樂,淡然是一種彻悟與及是人生的成熟。
