Simply put, Chan is a process.
In this process,
All of one’s thoughts and expression
Culminate in the result of wisdom
Which leads to perfect and thorough enlightenment.
People are easily lost when they are intoxicated by their triumphs and success.
Only when they are deeply frustrated and defeated
Do they start to understand the importance of keeping their heads cool
To deal with whatever may happen in numerous days to come.
It is like when people have done something wrong,
They will try to find ways to atone for the wrong.
If charitable donations for the poor are not made or managed properly,
It may result in turning some people into lazy ones who depend solely on others’ donations.
However, it will never be inappropriate to make donations for those who are in need
in times of emergencies.
Donations in such cases will definitely relieve the desperate ones of their plights and miseries.
Nevertheless, only charities for the poor are found in every corner of our society.
Nowhere can we find an organization dedicated to help people who, out of some emergencies,
are desperate in need of help only for the time being.
