DAILY SELECTIONS FROM LAO-TZU’S TAO TE CHING — JULY 31, 2019

The Master gives himself up
to whatever the moment brings.
He knows that he is going to die,
and he has nothing left to hold on to:
no illusions in his mind,
no resistances in his body.
He doesn’t think about his actions;
they flow from the core of his being.
He holds nothing back from life;
therefore he is ready for death,
as a man is ready for sleep
after a good day’s work.

-Lao-tzu- (Tao Te Ching, verse 50, interpretation by Stephen Mitchell)
