Mist Swallows the Mountain

This mountain stands clear day and night. When the mist appears, it swallows the whole mountain.

The frightening thing is not the cloud and the mist. The scariest thing is like having eyes, but the opinions from our eyes obscure us from seeing clearly. Whenever we cannot see clearly, we will make mistakes and start to enter the ocean of suffering!
