The Master of Restlessness!

Tao Te Ching 26

Heaviness is the root of lightness
Quietness is the master of restlessness

Therefore the sages travel an entire day
Without leaving the heavy supplies
Even though there are luxurious sights
They are composed and transcend beyond

How can the lords of ten thousand chariots
Apply themselves lightly to the world?
To be light is to lose one’s root
To be restless is to lose one’s mastery

    1. This is daily inspiration from Tao Te Ching. Chinese mystic Lao Tzu wrote these verses some 3000 years ago. They are so rich with wisdom and I love them. Though blog has a lot of blabberwockying too, I hope it would be positive and inspiring in days to come. Thanks for support, feedback and encouragement 🙂 🙂 Anand
