Knowing constancy, the mind is...

Knowing constancy, the mind is open.
With an open mind, you will be openhearted.
Being openhearted you will act royally.
Being royal, you will attain the divine.
Being divine, you will be at one with the Tao.
Being at one with the Tao is eternal.
Though the body dies, the Tao will never pass away.

Laozi 1311 quotes

Failure is an opportunity. If ...

Failure is an opportunity. If you blame someone else, there is no end to the blame. Therefore the Master fulfills her own obligations and corrects her own mistakes. She does what she needs to do and demands nothing of others.

When you let go of what you are, you become what you might be.

Laozi 1311 quotes

Although most people spend the...

Although most people spend their entire lives following this biological impulse (i.e. the sex drive), it is only a tiny portion of our beings. . . . If we remain obsessed with seeds and eggs, we are married to the fertile reproductive valley of the Mysterious Mother but not to her immeasurable heart and all-knowing mind.

Laozi 1311 quotes

If you can let go of (the Tao)...

If you can let go of (the Tao) with your mind and surround it with your heart, it will live inside you forever.

Laozi 1311 quotes

Can you dissolve your ego? Can...

Can you dissolve your ego? Can you abandon the idea of self and other? Can you relinquish the notions of male and female, short and long, life and death? Can you let go of all these dualities and embrace the Tao without skepticism or panic? If so, you can reach the heart of the Integral Oneness.

Governing a large state is like boiling a small fish.

Laozi 1311 quotes

In this world, there is nothin...

In this world, there is nothing softer or thinner than water. But to compel the hard and unyielding, it has no equal. That the weak overcomes the strong, that the hard gives way to the gentle - this everyone knows. Yet no one asks accordingly.

Laozi 1311 quotes

Free from desire, you realize ...

Free from desire, you realize the mystery, caught in the desire, you see only the manifestations.

Laozi 1311 quotes

All things issue from it; all ...

All things issue from it; all things return to it. To find the origin, trace back the manifestations. When you recognize the children and find the mother, you will be free of sorrow. If you close your mind in judgements and traffic with desires, your heart will be troubled. If you keep your mind from judging and aren't led by the senses, your heart will find peace. Seeing into darkness is clarity. Knowing how to yield is strength. Use your own light and return to the source of light. This is called practicing eternity.

Laozi 1311 quotes

My teachings are easy to under...

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.

Laozi 1311 quotes

When you realize where you com...

When you realize where you come from, you naturally become tolerant, amused, kindhearted as a grandmother, and dignified as a king. Immersed in wonder, you can deal with whatever life brings you, and when death comes, you are ready.

Laozi 1311 quotes

It's hard to keep your balance standing tip-toe.

Nature does not have to insist.

The surest test if a person be...

The surest test if a person be sane, is if she accepts life whole, as it is.

Laozi 1311 quotes

Simulated disorder postulates ...

Simulated disorder postulates perfect discipline; simulated fear postulates courage; simulated weakness postulates strength.

Laozi 1311 quotes

All streams flow to the sea be...

All streams flow to the sea because it is lower than they are. Humility gives it its power. If you want to govern the people, you must place yourself below them. If you want to lead the people, you must learn how to follow them. The Master is above the people, and no one feels oppressed. She goes ahead of the people, and no one feels manipulated. The whole world is grateful to her. Because she competes with no one, no one can compete with her.

Laozi 1311 quotes

A brave and passionate man wil...

A brave and passionate man will kill or be killed.
A brave and calm man will always preserve life.
Of these two which is good and which is harmful?

Laozi 1311 quotes

Governing a large country is l...

Governing a large country is like frying a small fish. You spoil it with too much poking. Center your country in the Tao and evil will have no power. Not that it isn't there, but you'll be able to step out of its way. Give evil nothing to oppose and it will disappear by itself.

Laozi 1311 quotes

Thirty spokes meet in the hub,...

Thirty spokes meet in the hub,
but the empty space between them
is the essence of the wheel.

Pots are formed from clay,
but the empty space within it
is the essence of the pot.

Walls with windows and doors
form the house,
but the empty space within it
is the essence of the home.
