The True Human unifies with Nature and equalises all things.
The True Human is empty,
yet is also everything.
The True Human is unconscious,
yet is also everywhere.
The True Human of old slept without Dreaming,
and woke without anxiety.
The True Human ate without concern, and breathed deeply.
The breath of the True Human arose from the depth of the feet,
while the Common Human breathes in a shallow manner from the throat.
The True Human of old knew neither to love life, nor to hate death.
They offered no resistance.
The True Human of old received with delight anything that came into their life,
and let go of anything that had been lost or forgotten.
The True Human’s mind was free from all thought.
Their way was one of stillness and Silence - shining with Simplicity.
The True Human was in Harmony with all things –
without any mind of knowledge.
~ Chuang Tzu
Chuang Tzu - 莊子 - was an influential Chinese philosopher who lived around the 4th century BC during the Warring States period, a period corresponding to the summit of Chinese philosophy - the Hundred Schools of Thought. He is credited with writing—in part or in whole—a work known by his name, the Chuang Tzu, which is one of the foundational texts of Taoism, often paired with the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu.
