“The shining mind is always calm; in action,it responds to myriad changes. Even when active, it is essentially always calm.
The wandering mind is always stirring; in quietude it produces myriad thoughts. Even when quiet, it is basically always astir.
Of old it has been said; always extinguish the stirring mind don’t extinguish the shining mind. The unstirring mind is the shining mind; the mind that does not stop is the wandering mind.
The shining mind is the mind of Tao; the wandering mind is the human mind. When it is said that the mind of Tao is vague, this means it is subtle and difficult to see. When it is said that the human mind is in peril, this means it is insecure and uneasy.
…It is a matter of persistently keeping centered and balanced in activity and stillness, so that the shining mind is always present and the wandering mind does not stir. Then what was insecure will become peaceful, and what was vague will become clear.” - Taoist Classics, Translator: Thomas Cleary
