KINDNESS

Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.

The Master helps people lose everything
they know, everything they desire,
and creates confusion
in those who think that they know.

When you find the way others will find you.
Passing by on the road they will be drawn to your door.
The way that cannot be heard will be echoed in your voice.
The way that cannot be seen will be reflected in your eyes.

I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.

Why did the ancient Masters esteem the Tao?
Because, being one with the Tao,
when you seek, you find;
and when you make a mistake, you are forgiven.
That is why everybody loves it.

(from 'Tao Te Ching' verse 62)

There is no greater affliction than desire, no greater curse than discontent, no greater misfortune than wanting something for oneself. Therefore he who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.

When the Tao is present the horses haul manure. When the Tao is absent war horses are bred outside the city.

My teachings are easy to understand
and easy to put into practice.
Yet your intellect will never grasp them,
and if you try to practice them, you'll fail.

My teachings are older than the world.
How can you grasp their meaning?

If you want to know me,
look inside your heart.

Being without passion, behold the source!
Being with passion, behold the flow!
The two are one - born of the same root,
Differently named when they appear.
Both may be called mystery -
Going from mystery to deeper mystery,
Enter the secret of Life!

If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the World, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.

The gentlest thing in the world
overcomes the hardest thing in the world.
That which has no substance
enters where there is no space.
This shows the value of non-action.

Teaching without words,
performing without actions:
that is the Master's way.

('Tao Te Ching', v.43)

The Tao doesn't take sides;
it gives birth to both good and evil.
The Master doesn't take sides;
she welcomes both saints and sinners.

The Tao is like a bellows:
it is empty yet infinitely capable.
The more you use it, the more it produces;
the more you talk of it, the less you understand.

Hold on to the center.

~ Lao Tzu ("Tao Te Ching", v.5)

Abide at the centre of your being,
For the more you leave it, the less you learn.

“The highest truth cannot be put into words. Therefore the greatest teacher has nothing to say. He simply gives himself in service, and never worries

If you want to become full, let yourself be empty.
If you want to be given everything, give everything up.
If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.
When there is no desire, all things are at peace.
In the pursuit of knowledge, every day something is added;
In the practice of Tao, every day something is dropped.

The Sage’s power is like this;
He lets all things come and go effortlessly, without desire.
He never expects results, thus he is never disappointed.
He is never disappointed, thus his spirit never grows old.

The more morals and taboos there are, the more cruelty afflicts people; The more guns and knives there are, the more factions divide people; The more arts and skills there are, the more change obsoletes people; The more laws and taxes there are, the more theft corrupts people.

The Tao begets the One,
The One begets the two,
The two begets the three and
The three begets the ten thousand things.
All things are backed by the shade,
Faced by the light,
And harmonized by the immaterial breath.

Those who are highly evolved maintain an undiscriminating perception. Seeing everything, labeling nothing, they maintain their awareness of the Great Oneness. Thus they are supported by it.

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.

Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.

The ego is a monkey catapulting through the jungle: totally fascinated by the realm of the senses, it swings from one desire to the next, one conflict to the next, one self-centered idea to the next. If you threaten it, it actually fears for its life. Let this monkey go. Let the senses go. Let desires go. Let conflicts go. Let ideas go. Let the fiction of life and death go. Just remain in the center, watching. And then forget that you are there.
