Excerpt from "Secret of the Golden Flower"

Translated by Thomas Cleary(1991):

"So should one have no thoughts? It is impossible to have no thoughts. Should one not breathe? It is impossible not to breathe. Nothing compares to making the affliction the medicine, which means to have mind and breath rest on each other. Therefore turning the breath should be included in turning the light around."
