Q: If I follow this Way, and refrain from intellectual prooesscs and conceptual thinking, shall I be cenain of attaining the goal?
A: Such non-intellection ts following the Way! Why this talk of attaining and not attaining? The matter is thus–by thinking of something you create an entity and by thinking of nothing you create another. Let such erroneous thinking perish utterly, and then nothing will re.main for you to go seeking!
