The Wisdom Of Taoism


The cloud does not insist upon its form,

The wave does not force its way over the ocean,

So why should you clutch so tightly

Your little map?

Follow your heart

And know joy in all things.

The path of freedom

Has no markers,

Yet it leads to fulfillment ;

The path of confusion

Is crowded with signs,

Pointing in all directions.

The Great Way is a humble, solitary path

Leading Home:

Follow it closely and be guided.

How do you know you are on the Way?

When your map no longer serves you.

"Losing the map" is a good tip:-))

I rememeber reading somewhere:

Salaam dearest Sister Krishna:

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing such sublime wisdom. The way of the Tao is so much like the Sufi path that it only illuminates the truth that all spiritual paths are indeed One.

Ya Haqq!

Sweet Sister Krishna ... loved this beautiful post ..

The cloud does not insist upon its form,
The wave does not force its way over the ocean,
So why should you clutch so tightly
Your little map?
