IS AS THE LIGHTNING THAT CLEARS ATMOSPHERES
A LIGHTENING THAT PREPARES FOR BIRTHING

(of Divine Grace/Lightning-Lightening-ew)
As long as you are in the mind, you are ruled by the past,
because mind is just an accumulation of the past.

nothing more, nothing less.

from letting go of plans.
Life lives itself.
From Tao Te Ching, Chapter 57
nor according to my plans -
but by the eternal creative
flow of Tao.
The same Life that carves canyons
and fills up oceans,
sustains me without effort,
and I live according to my nature
the way the bear who lives unseen
on the hill behind my home
lives according to his nature.

But the most beautiful and functional homes arise
from flexible and open-ended plans,
and are created by builders who let the form emerge
from a blend of materials and imagination.

of forms and products built according to someone’s “plan.”
not according to plan, but according to their own nature.
As a forest has its own nature,
so does our individual life.
Don’t spoil it with a plan.
Tao Te Ching, Chapter 57
