the only true power


Dualistic thinking is

a sickness. Religion is a distortion.

Materialism is cruel. Blind spirituality is unreal.

Chanting is no more holy than listening to the murmur

of a stream, counting prayer beads no more sacred

than simply breathing, religious robes

no more spiritual than

work clothes.


If you wish

to attain oneness with the tao,

don’t get caught up in spiritual superficialities.

Instead, live a quiet and simple life, free of ideas and

concepts. Find contentment in the practice

of undiscriminating virtue, the only

true power.


Giving to others

selflessly and anonymously,

radiating light throughout the world

and illuminating your own darknesses,

your virtue becomes a sanctuary

for yourself and all beings.
