Be still. Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like
Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself
Take care with the end as you do with the beginning
The flame that burns Twice as bright burns half as long
He who stands on tiptoe
doesn’t stand firm.
He who rushes ahead
doesn’t go far.
He who tries to shine
dims his own light.
He who defines himself
can’t know who he really is.
He who has power over others
can’t empower himself.
He who clings to his work
will create nothing that endures.
At the center of your being
you have the answer;
you know who you are
and you know what you want
In the end, The treasure of life is missed by those who hold on and gained by those who let go
Water is fluid, soft & yielding but water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield … what is soft is strong
Not-knowing is true knowledge.
Presuming to know is a disease.
First realize that you are sick;
then you can move toward health.
