This verse reminds me that most change and growth in my life came about as a result of being sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Knowing what cannot be known ~
what a lofty aim!
Not knowing what needs to be known ~
what a terrible result!
Only when your sickness becomes sick will your sickness disappear
The Sage’s illness has become ill
his renunciation has been renounced
Now he is free
And every place in this world is the perfect place to be
…Verse 71 from “Tao Te Ching”
Lao-Tzu, translated by Jonathan Star
