THE UNDULATING FLOW

from where you had started,
you have come to the ultimate
where you wanted to reach.
The circle is full.
and then there is fulfillment.
When the circle is complete there is fulfillment.
And that is the whole teaching of
The Secret Of The Golden Flower of Master Lu-tsu.
how the circle can be complete,
how the light can circulate,
how you can move inwards,
how you can also have a little bit of sky,
a little bit of heaven.
even in hell you will be happy.
is an expression of the Tao.
It springs into existence,
unconscious, perfect, free,
takes on a physical body,
lets circumstances complete it.
That is why every being
spontaneously honors the Tao.
nourishes them, maintains them,
cares for them, comforts them, protects them,
takes them back to itself,
creating without possessing,
acting without expecting,
guiding without interfering.
That is why love of the Tao
is in the very nature of things.
