Be Still.

I love the translation of the Tao Te Ching by Sam Torode. His “Ancient Renewal” series of books are excellent.

This morning, I had read the 15th chapter – “Ancient Masters”, and the final verse resonated with me heavily.

To clarify muddy waters,

you must hold them still and let things settle.

To glimpse the secret of the Tao,

you must keep still and quiet your mind.

Lao Tzu

Be still.
