A Quote from the Tao de Ching

  In pursuit of knowledge,
every day something is added.
In the practice of the Tao,
every day something is dropped.
Less and less do you need to force things,
until finally you arrive at non-action.
When nothing is done,
nothing is left undone.

True mastery can be gained
by letting things go their own way.
It can't be gained by interfering.


translated by Stephen Mitchell

From the Tao Te Ching

  10
Can you coax your mind from its wandering
and keep to the original oneness?
Can you let your body become
supple as a newborn child's?
Can you cleanse your inner vision
until you see nothing but the light?
Can you love people and lead them
without imposing your will?
Can you deal with the most vital matters
by letting events take their course?
Can you step back from your own mind
and thus understand all things?

Giving birth and nourishing,
having without possessing,
acting with no expectations,
leading and not trying to control:
this is the supreme virtue.

When you are mindless

  When you are mindless, she sings in your head
When you are nowhere, he stands in your stead
When you are voiceless she whispers a prayer
Where you stop running he is waiting there
When you are silence she is heard humming
With no destination he is coming
Prepare then a fire-ring for her return
You must become kindling for God to burn
If your house is empty he will come in
When you know nothing you'll know her again
When you are unending he will begin
A vessel of absence God is within
When you are naked you wear divine clothes
One and no-one in turbulent repose
