Posts Tagged ‘Humility’

Mighty Tao is all-pervading.
It is simultaneously on this side
and on that.
All living things come from it,
and all are in its care.
It works, it finishes,
and knows not the name of merit.
In love it nurtures all things,
and claims no excellence therein.
It knows neither ambition nor desire.
It can be classed with the jumblest of all things,
for all things finally revert to it,
and are not thereby increased.
Tao can be mentioned with
the greatest of things.
And the Sage
understands humility in this.

Tao is a mighty teacher, and those who learn through observing Tao grow humble in their hearts. Watch, and you will see that Tao is continually providing for everything. Tao infuses what is great and what is small with the same nurturing energy. Tao does not discriminate, nor does it forget. Tao tends carefully to everything.

Sometimes the most difficult thing to appreciate is how much creativity is brought to making your life beautiful, how much love is given to your existence. If you tend to find fault with things, relax. Let yourself be taken care of. It is sometimes too easy to want to fight or to think that things are against you. Fighting makes you feel separate and powerful. It distracts you from feeling loved.

Approach Tao with humiity, and you will see that life is complete and undivided. Move toward Tao and you move towards perfect balance. Contemplate Tao and you become one with all of existence.
