I’m thinking…

…about the Tao

Speak little
Hold to your own nature
A strong wind does not blow all morning
A cloudburst does not last all day
The wind and rain are from Heaven and Earth
and even these do not last long
How much less so the efforts of man?

One who lives in accordance with the Truth
becomes the embodiment of Tao
His actions become those of Nature
his ways those of Heaven
It is through such a one
that Heaven rejoices
that Earth rejoices
that all of life rejoices

…Verse 23 from “Tao Te Ching”
Lao-Tzu, translated by Jonathan Star
