Self and Other Are One

He who rejoices in quiet and shrinks from noise
    Will sometimes avoid others and seek peace.
He does not know that
    With his intention of being where men are not,
        he engenders the concept of self;
    With a mind attached to peace,
        he establishes the root of activity.
How about reaching the point
    Where self and other are regarded as one,
    And activity and peace are both forgotten?
