To know 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.
