“In the pursuit of knowledge, every day something is added.
In the pursuit of the Tao, every day something is dropped.
Less and less do you need to force things, until finally you arrive at non action.
When nothing is done, nothing is left undone……” — Tao te Ching translation by Stephen Mitchell
The mind is like a river, once in motion it hard to stop. As we add feeling to our life we begin to understand that the mind becomes quiet when we don’t feed it. We feel what limits us and the mind’s chatter begins to drop away. If we let ourselves do this every day we will finally arrive at a quiet, peaceful mind. When the mind is quiet nothing gets in our way and nothing is left behind either. As the internal conflict drops away we experience inner peace and a harmonious life. ~Alain & Jody Herriott
