No Difference Between Ancient and Modern People

I usually say there is no difference between ancient and modern people… A trait of an average person is to think of saints or demons or heavenly beings if you speak of the ancients, and to think there is a seperation of heaven and earth only for modern people. This is the height of despair… Such people cannot follow a path like Emperors Yao and Shun.
