BEYOND ALL UNHOLY DESTRUCTION
TRANSCENDS ALL PLOYS OF
enjoying every bit of it. Isn’t that the most important thing?
Other things are only arrangements.
But when people have no sense of wellbeing within themselves,
their only way to be well is to be better than someone else.
This sickness has caught the world so badly.
Just trying to be better than somebody,
how many human beings have destroyed themselves!
How many human beings have wasted their lives on this planet just trying to look a little better than somebody else!
Don’t waste your life trying to look better than somebody else.
It is such a horrible waste of life,
because you will never blossom into your full potential
if you keep thinking how to be better than somebody.
Do the best that you can – what has to happen will happen.
Excerpts above from:
the sky is clear and spacious,
the earth is solid and full,
all creature flourish together,
content with the way they are,
endlessly repeating themselves,
the sky becomes filthy,
the earth becomes depleted,
the equilibrium crumbles,
creatures become extinct.
because he understands the whole.
His constant practice is humility.
He doesn't glitter like a jewel
but lets himself be shaped by the Tao,
as rugged and common as stone.
