The Tao Is Tao (125)

@125





                                                          125

                              Even after his illusions have evaporated
                                                  into emptiness,
                                              the image of her face
                                                        lingers,
                                            pale as a lily in the shade.

                                                                    -- Jos Stabbert

Ah, the image of her face. ... Read more...Collapse )
In the desert,
Turn toward emptiness,
Fleeing the self.

Stand alone,
Ask no one's help,
And your being will quiet,
Free from the bondage of things.

Those who cling to the world,
Endeavor to free them;
Those who are free, praise.

Care for the sick,
But live alone,
Happy to drink from the waters of sorrow,
To kindle Love's fire
With the twigs of a simple life.

Thus you will live in the desert.

Thank you toaquamarcia
