the Way pervades all

The Way

is not what the ancestors

transmit. Before the ancestors come,

it already pervades the whole environment.

Emptiness is inherently without characteristics;

spirituality cannot be imitated. On its own,

illumination emerges from causes

and  conditions. Simply unite

with it; you cannot be

handed

it.

caring for others, you care for yourself

support this good man

 

 
A

superior person

cares for the well-being of all things.

She does this by accepting responsibility for the energy

she manifests, both actively and in the subtle realm. Looking at a tree,

she sees not an isolated event but root, leaves, trunk, water,

soil and sun: each event related to the others,

and “tree” arising out of their

relatedness.

 


Looking

at herself or another,

she sees the same thing. Trees and

animals, humans and insects, flowers and birds:

These are active images of the subtle energies that flow

from the stars throughout the universe. Meeting

and combining with each other and

the elements of the earth, they

give rise to all living

things.
 
 
The

superior person

understands this, and understands

that her own energies play a part in it. Understanding

these things, she respects the earth as her mother, the heavens

as her father, and all living things as her brothers and sisters.

Caring for them, she knows that she cares for herself.

Giving to them, she knows that she gives to

herself. At peace with them, she is

always at peace with

herself.

awaken, rest, blaze, be still

meditation

 

The

desire to go

home that is a desire to

be whole, to know where you are,

to be the point of intersection of all the lines

drawn through all the stars, to be the constellation-maker

and the center of the world, that center called love. To awaken

from sleep, to rest from awakening, to tame the animal,

to let the soul go wild, to shelter in darkness

and blaze with light, to cease to

speak and be perfectly

understood.

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.”

 

from The Tao te Ching of Lao Tzu,

Chapter 17
