Be Like the Wind

June 6, 2012 § 4 Comments

This is one of my most treasured passages from the Tao.

 

Express yourself completely,

then keep quiet.

Be like the forces of nature:

when it blows, there is only wind;

when it rains, there is only rain;

when the clouds pass, the sun shines through.

Tao te Ching, Chapter 23 (Stephen Mitchell translation)

 

A simple thought, a source of strength.
