NULLIFIES ALL PERPETRATORS,
OUTER WILES, FEINTS & DECEPTIONS
Because just the fact that you woke up is not a small thing.
So many millions of people who slept last night did not wake up today,
but you and me woke up.
Isn’t it great that you woke up?
So smile because you woke up.
Then look around and if there is someone, smile at them.
For so many people, someone dear to them did not wake up today morning. Everyone who is dear to you woke up – Wow!
It’s a great day, isn’t it?
Then go out and take a look at the trees.
They didn’t die last night either.
If you do not mess up your mind, you will naturally be joyfuL.
when you do not have to do anything to be happy,
then every dimension of your life
– the way you perceive and express yourself and the world –
You will no longer have vested interests
because whether you do something or you do not do something,
whether you get something or do not get something,
whether something happens or does not happen,
you will be joyous by your nature.
When you are joyous by your nature,
your actions will rise to a completely different level.

Stop trying to improve yourself
and find that you naturally improve.
From Tao Te Ching, Chapter 57

by insisting that it keep improving.
Who is this “self”
and why does it need “improving?”
I’d like to keep learning and discovering
new wonders in the corners of my life.
into the reality of existence.
But I think for this to happen
I’ll have to stop tending to this self
and its demands for improvement.
new depths of myself and of the cosmos in which I live.
To use the concept of improvement to characterize this enjoyment is,
at least within my culture, unhelpful.
Improvement tends to imply a standard
by which to measure myself,
an “ideal me” for which to strive.
Innovation is simply thinking of something new
and giving it a try.
Exploration is the willingness to venture into new territory,
relationships, and world views.
These things can flow naturally within my life
without being contaminated
by the conditioned desire to, “improve.”
Where the lips are silent
the heart has a thousand tongues.
