Why Taoism?

                                                The ignorant
                                          feel cold and lonely
                                          when they think of
                                                    the Tao,
                                                 indefinable,
                                                 without pity
                                           beyond their reach.

The Tao does not weep at their feet when they are suffering.Collapse )
Not willing to let go of grasping and rejecting,
In vain you labor studying the spiritual path.
You read the prescription but you don't take the medicine-
How can you be free from your sickness?
Grasp “emptiness” and it turns out to be form;
Grasping form it soon proves impermanent.
Form and emptiness — neither are my possessions;
Sitting erect, I see my native home.
Poetry Chaikhana | P'ang Yun (Layman P'ang) - Not willing to let go of grasping and rejecting
There are no unsacred places;
there are only sacred places
and desecrated places.

Poetry Chaikhana | Wendell Berry - How to Be a Poet
