Heaven and Earth are everlasting.
Heaven and Earth do not pursue a purpose;
or try to find its path.
Silently and steadfastly accepting
each its position in the universe.
Obeying day and night.
Allowing seasons to come and go without anguish, fear or stress.
Do not hold fixed ideas about yourself or life.
The harder we try to force things to go our way,
the bigger the onslaught of dead ends and feeling of hopelessness grows.
Poisoning our minds and souls.
We can avoid spending energy in futility
and accomplish more by using the tide of each day
to take us to where we need to go.
By giving up, we gain and become more
and by holding on, we squander and become less.
Losing the gift of living by challenging our being to the core
that slowly reveal the steadfast beauty from within.
