The Tao Is Tao (147)

                                                            147

                                          Turning toward emptiness
                                                 to excaoe reality
                                  is turning away from your true self.
                          Losing yourself in reality to escape emptiness
                                       is falling prey to an illusion.
                  Like a drowning man clinging to  an imaginary branch
                                 you will surely perish in the flood.

                                                                                  -- Jos Srabbert
                                                                                "The Tao is Tao"

"My place is placeless, my trace is traceless,
no body, no soul, I am from the soul of souls.
I have chased out duality, lived the two worlds as one."
