The Great Way

The Great Way is the gate of non-being;
The thousand differences is the road of being.
Going through this passage,
Heaven and Earth is only a footstep.

-- Wumen Huik'ai, The Gateless Passage of Ch'an

Whoa. Those are four powerful lines. I'm looking for the Great Way. Haven't found non-being yet.
