Five colors make your eyes go blind.
Five tones make your ears go deaf.
Five tastes make your palate dull.

The chase and hunt
makes one’s mind and heart
go crazy.

Rare and valuable treasures
put people on guard.

The sage cares for her inner senses
and not her outer senses,
preferring that which is within.
