Consider That Which is Insignificant

May 29, 2021

 

That which is still and at rest is easily kept quiet.

That which has not yet appeared is easily prevented.

What is still feeble and weak is easily broken.

What is still deficient is easily dispersed.

 

Treat things before they exist.

Regulate things before disorder begins.

Reaching the Source

Jun 11, 2018

 

Too many steps have been taken returning,
to the Root and the Source.
Better to have been blind and deaf from the beginning..!
Dwelling in One's True Abode,
unconcerned with that without --
The river flows tranquilly on and the flowers are red...

 

From the beginning, truth is clear. Poised in silence, I observe the forms of integration and disintegration. One who is not attached to 'form' need not be 'reformed'. The water is emerald, the mountain is indigo, and I see that which is creating and that which is destroying...
