“No beginning” sounds like it could mean, “no way to start it,” but what it really means is it’s always here. There’s no separate starting point existing someone where else. Right here, right where you are, everything is unfolding. You are in the midst of your path.
I take refuge in one mind,
it guides all life to the bright path,
which is neither longer nor shorter,
sooner nor later.
끊임없는 생명들의 줄어듦도 늘어남도 본래 없는
밝은 길을 인도하는 한마음에 귀의하리다.
