A long time ago, a very dear friend sent this to me in a beautiful picture frame that I still keep hung on my wall. I often stare at it to center me: To encourage being in the moment and find gratitude in what surrounds me, and to institute faith that the sun will continue to shine…
Express yourself completely, then become quiet.
Open yourself to heaven and earth, and be like the forces of nature: when the wind blows, there is only the wind; when it rains, there is only the rain; when the clouds pass, the sun promises to shine.
If you open yourself to insight, you are at one with insight and can use it completely.
Open yourself to heaven and earth, then trust your natural responses; and everything will fall into place.
– Lao Tsu
