this mysterious place of not-knowing

rip lion

 

Between their births

and their deaths, three out of ten

are attached to life, three out of ten are

attached to death, three out of ten are just

idly passing through. Only one knows

how to die and stay dead and

still go on living.

 

That one

hasn’t any ambitions,

hasn’t any ideas, makes no plans.

From this mysterious place of not-knowing

and non-doing he gives birth to whatever is needed

in the moment. Because he is constantly filling his being

with nonbeing, he can travel the wilds without

worrying about tigers or wild buffalo,

or he can cross a battlefield

without armor or

weapon.

 

No tiger can claw him.

No buffalo can gore him.

No weapon can pierce him.

 

Why is this so?

Because he has died, there

isn’t any more room for

death in him.

do non-doing and inherit the universe

Why

wait around for

a teacher? Pick up staff

and knock the sense out of

yourself, so you can

enter eternity.

 

The ancestors

are everywhere around you,

offering the silent light of truth.

Put down what you’re doing with

your mind and pick up that up.

Do non-doing, and you’ll

inherit the whole

universe.

the soft overcomes the hard

wei wu wei

 

The soft

overcomes the hard in the

world as a gentle rider controls

a galloping horse. That without

substance can penetrate where

there is no space. By these I

know the benefit of

non-action.

 

Teaching

without words,

working without effort —

nothing in the world

can compare with

them.

a clear and open state of freedom


 

Cogitation,

making judgements,

following patterns, firing arrows,

engaging in endless ideation and emotional

behavior — all these are to be abandoned

and transcended on the

Way.

 

Be still.

Do non doing.

A clear and open

state of freedom

will appear.
