Bit by Bit - Chapter 19, Part 2

Trey Smith

He who wants to avoid doing anything for his body had best abandon the world. By abandoning the world, he can be without entanglements. Being without entanglements, he can be upright and calm. Being upright and calm, he can be born again with others. Being born again, he can come close [to the Way].
~ Burton Watson translation ~
The last I checked, it's really not possible to abandon the world. It is something we must live in...until we aren't living anymore.
