I teach straying from me, yet who can stray from me?
I follow you whoever you are from the present hour,
My words itch at your ears till you understand them.
He teaches people people to stray into whatever thoughts he or she runs into.
And yet, he is entire, he is common, he is everywhere like the grass, so it is impossible to stray from him. His presence is almost hegemonic.
