The Wisdom of LAO TZU – 2

Lao-Tzu-Bronze

Some say my teaching is nonsense.
Others call it lofty but impractical.

But to those who have looked inside themselves,
this nonsense makes perfect sense.

And those who put it into practice
this loftiness has roots that go deep.
I have just three things to teach:

Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.

Simple in actions and in thoughts,
you return to the source of being.

Patient with both friends and enemies
You accord with the way things are,

Compassionate towards yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.

Shift from Seeking to Finding!

Shift from seeking to finding!!!

Facebook-Cover-rain-street-beautiful

Everyone is seeking for answers. Seeking to feel better. They do not like what they possess. Someone else seems to have what they
want. It is a miserable situation. People seek wealth, power, authority, love and so on. But all this search is based on external
things. Everything in the external world comes and goes. People get lost in the search for external things.

The reality is different. The external world is just a reflection of the inner world. If someone or something makes them happy it is
actually the seeing of the happiness which is already within them. Similarly to get angry at some one is actually projecting the
anger that exists within on to others. All that is considered external actually exists internally.

To know this is the end of seeking and the start of finding. Is a wonderful moment because the blame game with the external
world comes to an end. Energy and attention are brought back to the inner world. Awareness is brought to what is happening
in the moment. This leads to light and love opening and unfolding. A bridge to the real self is built.

They do not have to see this as a daunting task. Just dig one shovel full of dirt at a time. By gently bringing awareness to what
is happening in the inner world. To see what is there. To see how the story is influencing their lives, begins the process of letting
go of the pain and attatchments. Clearing away the sludge makes them feel better. Deeper truths and answers that they held
within come up to the surface. Bringing the answers that they were seeking outside.

Reality

stillness-of-water-terry-cosgrave

“Know all things to be like this:
A mirage, a cloud castle,
A dream, an apparition,
Without essence, but with qualities that can be seen.

“Know all things to be like this:

As the moon in a bright sky
In some clear lake reflected,
Though to that lake the moon has never moved.

Know all things to be like this:
As an echo that derives
From music, sounds and weeping,
Yet in that echo is no melody.

Know all things to be like this:
As a magician makes illusions
Of horses, oxen, carts, and other things,
Nothing is as it appears.”

One suffering you could avoid

1240

“You can hold back from
suffering of the world,
you have permission to do so,
and it is in accordance
with your nature,

but perhaps this very holding back
is the one suffering
you could have avoided”

Franz Kafka

Pause button

stillness1

By locating the mind’s pause button we can come to know the voice that resides deep within us. This voice is the ultimate guide. It’s our intuition, timeless wisdom, and the voice of our heart. It always knows what’s best for us because it’s our greatest supporter, most attentive lover and dearest friend. What it has to tell us is more important than anything we could ever learn from the outside world – Sasha Manes
