Written by Chinese Poet Yuan Hongri
Translated by Yuanbing Zhang
God is Ourselves after Waking up
You can’t catch worldly everything as if you can’t retain the days.
You can’t see the truth of all things as if you can’t see your own soul.
Happiness and tribulation may not exist as if there is no night and daylight in the Kingdom of Heaven,
And the universe is merely the phantom of the light of our soul, and God is ourselves after waking up.
The Universe is the Heavenly Garden of The Stars
Emptiness-nothingness will save you and wipe away all of the worldly scars,
Until you are fresh as the beginning and as fragrance- beauty as another spring.
The world will never fade because the universe is the heavenly garden of the stars.
The ulterior you are that giant who is arriving in a huge spaceship from another city of the sun.
The King of the Universe
Seek thyself and seek your soul which is a lifetime mission.
The soul is both in your body and the Kingdom of Heaven,
Because the eyes are always deceive you and make you lost in the illusion of the world.
You will be the king of the universe when you find yourself or even you have nothing.
The City of Dreamland
You walk in the city of dreamland but forget that you are the unique creator.
And the soul is the unique God and lives in the amnesic Kingdom of Heaven;
And you believe in a riot of colours in the dream–the flowerness of life and the blight
And the mulse of love make you look like butterfly that hovered lightly in the garden and
forgot that your name is Zhuangzi.
