Stop thinking

Number 20 of the Tao te Ching begins with: 

Stop thinking, and end your problems.

What difference between yes and no?

What difference between success and failure?

Must you value what others value,

avoid what others avoid?

How ridiculous!

When the mind is at peace, when feeling and mind work together, harmony is the result.  The internal conflict drops away and comparing everything and everyone relative to ourselves is no longer necessary.  We now have the opportunity to live without the conflict of an overactive mind and we realize we are enough, happy and whole simply through being alive.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
