serving without expectation of reward

 

Tao gives

life to all beings.

Nature nourishes them.

Fellow creatures shape them.

Circumstances complete them.

Everything in existence respects tao and

honors nature — not by decree,

but spontaneously.

 

Tao gives life to all beings.

Nature watches over them, develops them,

shelters them, nurses them, grows them, ripens

them, completes them, buries them,

and returns them.

 

Giving birth,

nourishing life, shaping things

without possessing them, serving without

expectation of reward, leading without dominating:

These are the profound virtues of nature,

and of nature’s best beings.

returning to innocence

david pippy

 

It isn’t difficult to

become one with the Way.

How hard was it to be a baby?

But returning to innocence requires

intention. Drop your dark habits, your

ideas, your emotions, and allow an

opening for virtue and wisdom

to return. Do non-doing, and

goodness will inform

all you do.

what is meant by emodying the tao

john kraus / apod

 

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.

This is what is meant by

embodying the

tao.

courage, virtue, emptiness

bright virtue, high rise

 

It is foolish 

to think about attaining 

realization by any technique. 

Make habits of courage, virtue, 

and absolute emptiness, and 

simply realize what is 

already always 

present.
