three takes

 

There

are three miracles of our

Brother Jesus not yet recorded in the Book:

the first that he was a man like you and me; the second that

he had a sense of humor; and the third that he

knew he was a conqueror though

conquered.

 

Kahlil Gibran

 

Why do

people hate Jesus,

or at least prefer the ethereal dead

version known as Christ? Because Jesus made

outrageous demands: Love your enemy,

renounce material possessions,

give all you have to

the poor.

 

Barbara Ehrenreich

 

A

conservative is

someone who admires radicals

centuries after they’re

dead.

no separation

Those

who wish to

embody the Tao

should embrace all things.

To embrace all things means first

that one holds no anger or resistance

toward any idea or thing, living or

dead, formed or formless.

Acceptance is the very

essence of the

Tao.

 

To embrace

all things means also

that one rids oneself of any

concept of separation; male and

female, self and other, life and

death. Division is contrary

to the nature of

the Tao.

 

Foregoing

antagonism and

separation, one enters into

the harmonious oneness

of all things.

focus, purity, stillness

 

All that’s

important is concentrated

focus, purity, and stillness. Even when

you are engaged in doing things, this is not something

external. Take hold of them and return them to yourself —

this is what wondrous function is. The eighty thousand

sensory afflictions are immediately transformed

into eighty thousand means of transcendence,

and there is no more need to make

a special point of studying

with teachers.

tao gives rise to all forms

The Tao

gives rise to all forms,

yet it has no form of its own.

If you attempt to fix a picture of

it in your mind, you will lose

it. This is like pinning a

butterfly: the husk is

captured, but the

flying is

lost.

 

Why not be

content with simply

experiencing

it?

quiet mind, untroubled heart

 

Pause 

to consider 

the widespread degree 

to which people prefer chasing 

fame and fortune to refining their 

understanding of the Way. The evidence 

is that status and riches make people 

more insecure and frantic, 

not less, but do 

they examine 

this?

 

The wise 

person does,

and acts accordingly. 

She divests herself of unnecessary 

possessions and abandons frenetic activity. 

With her quiet mind and untroubled 

heart, she is at home anywhere 

in the universe wearing 

a patched 

robe.
