“Empty your mind of all thoughts,
let your heart be at peace.
Watch the turmoil of beings,
but contemplate their return.
Each seperate being in the universe,
returns to the common source.
Returning to the source is serenity.
If you don’t realise the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realise where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
kind-hearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.
Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
and when death comes, you are ready”
Tao Te Ching as translated by Stephen Mitchell
Some questions for you to ponder…
What is your source?
What will you return to?
What will you be tolerant of?
Where will you be kind-hearted?
What wonders can you immerse in?
And are you ready for death? If not, how will you prepare?
Sent with love,
