So the thing to do when working on a motorcycle,

as in any other task,

is to cultivate the peace of mind

which does not separate one’s self

from one’s surroundings.


When that is done successfully,

then everything else follows naturally.


Peace of mind produces right values,

right values produce right thoughts.

Right thoughts produce right actions

and right actions produce work

which will be a material reflection for others

to see of the serenity at the center of it all.
