Selections From the World’s Great Wisdom Traditions #10 Taoism

 

 

To Know the Tao

meditate

and still the mind.

Knowledge comes with perseverance.

 

The Way is neither full nor empty;

a modest and quiet nature understands this.

The empty vessel, the uncarved block;

nothing is more mysterious.

 

When enlightenment arrives

don’t talk too much about it;

just live it in your own way.

With humility and depth, rewards come naturally.

The fragrance of blossoms soon passes;

the ripeness of fruit is gone in a twinkling.

Our time in this world is so short,

better to avoid regret:

Miss no opportunity to savor the ineffable.

 

Like a golden beacon signaling on a moonless night,

Tao guides our passage through this transitory realm.

In moments of darkness and pain

remember all is cyclical.

Sit quietly behind your wooden door:

Spring will come again.

-Loy Ching Yuen

 

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable

 

Keep smiling, keep shining
