the best leader is one barely known

dog meditation buddha monks

 

The

best leader is one

whose existence is barely known.

Next best is one who is loved and praised.

After that, one who is feared. Worst

of all is a leader who is

despised.

 

If you

fail to trust people,

you won’t inspire their trust.

Therefore, guide others by quietly

relying on Tao. Then, when the

work is done, the people can

say, “We did this

ourselves.”

to know harmony is to know the eternal

springbaby
 

She

who is filled with

goodness is like a newborn child:

wasps and snakes will not bite it, fierce

beasts will not attack it, birds of

prey will not pounce

on it.

 

Its

bones are soft

and its muscles weak,

but its grip is firm. It hasn’t yet

known the union of male and female,

yet its organ stirs with vitality.

It can howl all day without

becoming hoarse,

so perfect is its

harmony.

 

To

know harmony is to

know the eternal.  To know

the eternal is to be

inspired.

 

Prolonging

life is not harmonious.

Coercing the breath is unnatural.

Things which are overdeveloped must

decay.  All this is contrary to Tao,

and whatever is contrary

to Tao soon ceases

to be.

 

from The Tao te Ching of Lao Tzu,

Chapter 55

in stillness a light reaches everywhere

meditation buddha
 

Put

down your myriad

of concerns and wake up.

At the end of the road it’s like an iron wall.

False thoughts are all extinguished, and extinguishing is

wiped away. Body and mind seem to be resting  on

the void. In the stillness a light reaches

everywhere with its

brilliance.
