The Tao is always at ease.

It overcomes without competing,

answers without speaking a word,

arrives without being summoned,

accomplishes without a plan.


Its net covers the whole universe.

And though its meshes are wide,

it doesn’t let a thing slip through.

tao te ching, Stephen Mitchell’s Translation

Personal Development:

The harder one fights to grasp a pearl the more distance it becomes. This is why the tempered spirit uses non-action to accomplish all things. By letting things flow, one lives in harmony with the way things are. Non-action is a perfect state of being.

Why listen to someone who has nothing to say?


Miles Davis

The Invisible Dragon
