Essential and non essential

Each person naturally receives his allotted share in his life.

He need not concentrate on it, he need not search for it; the allotted portion is there.

You may rush around in search of riches, but what happens if death suddenly comes?

You should clear their minds of these non-essential things and concentrate on studying the Way.

Dogen, Shobogenzo Zuimonki
