Chuang Tzu

May 12, 2009 at 3:58 pm Leave a comment

Do not open your door to fame.
Don’t make plans.
Don’t be taken by activities.
Don’t acknowledge a master

Keep your body whole without tiring it.
Wander where there is no path.
Be all that you have received from Heaven,
Without being aware of it.
Just be empty, that’s all.

The perfect man uses his mind as a mirror,
Not following after, not welcoming.
He responds without holding onto his response.
Thus he can win things over without effort.

Chuang Tzu

The great Taoist writer, philosopher and practitioner;

Funny and spiritual, wise and full of humour,

He wrote ‘Bank on the Tao’.

This is the only bank you can trust
