nothing is forced


 

In the

practice of the Way,

nothing is forced. Remaining

at home in quiet concentration,

you merge the outside

and inside into

one.

 

At peace

with everything,

unlearned, unworried,

untouched by phenomena,

you enter into reality

as an ordinary

person.

Favor and disgrace

are meaningless — what’s the use

of contending? Drifting clouds do not obstruct

the shining moonlight. My body lives in the city,

but my essence dwells in the mountains.

The affairs of a puppet play are

not to be taken too

seriously.

carry your heart like a life-giving sun


 

You

could become a

great horseman and help

to free yourself and this world though

only if you and prayer become sweet lovers.

It is a naive man who thinks we are not engaged in a

fierce battle, for I see and hear brave foot soldiers

all around me going mad, falling on the ground

in excruciating pain. You could become a

victorious horseman and carry your

heart through this world like a

life-giving sun though only

if you and God become

sweet lovers.

just breathe emptiness

The

best effort 

one can make is the 

gentlest effort: wei wu wei

Quietly, persistently direct the 

mind toward emptiness. When 

all thoughts and ideas have 

dissipated, then make no 

further effort. Just 

breathe. 

 

This

is the only

practice required of a 

human, the best one, the one 

that perfectly purifies

our lives.
