there are two paths


Do you wish

to free yourself of mental

and emotional knots and become one

with the Tao? If so, there are

two paths available

to you. 


The first is

the path of acceptance.

Affirm everyone and everything.

Freely extend your goodwill and virtue

in every direction, regardless of circumstances.

Embrace all things as part of the Harmonious

Oneness, and then you will begin

to perceive it. 


The second path

is that of denial. Recognize that

everything you see and think is a falsehood,

an illusion, a veil over the truth. Peel all the veils away,

and you will arrive at the Oneness. Though these

paths are entirely different, they will deliver

you to the same place: spontaneous

awareness of the Great



Once you

arrive there, remember:

it isn’t necessary to struggle to

maintain unity with it.

All you have to do is

rest in it.
