Blog my mind — feng shui

Nourish gently, lead quietly

Nourish gently, lead quietly



the wise person does not have
to be right or win an argument
the virtuous man is not interested
in finding fault

when you know everything
there is nothing left to learn
when you have more than you need
its presence weighs you down

therefore, the sage does not hoard
he gives freely and always has plenty
the Tao nourishes gently and
the master leads quietly

flow like water
reflect like a mirror
respond like an echo

the ripples in the pond
arise and fall exactly in accord
to the stimuli received

From The Alchemist’s Tao Te Ching
